The Idea of Order: If Kids Were Horses
Or, how to keep just about anyone from stealing your lunch.
So this week’s comic was inspired by some of the littlest barn munchkins (I promise I’m not just trying to be obscene). As if horses don’t create enough chaos on their own throwing in a handful of children really ups the ante. This little incident reminded me of SmartPak’s awesome series If Horses Were People.
Morgane Schmidt Gabriel is a 32-year-old teacher/artist/dressage trainer/show announcer/ who still hasn’t quite decided what she wants to be when she grows up. A native Floridian, she now lives in Reno, NV, where she’s been able to confirm her suspicion that snow is utterly worthless. Though she has run the gamut of equestrian disciplines, her favorite is dressage. She was recently able to complete her USDF bronze and silver medals and is currently working on her gold. Generally speaking her life is largely ruled by Woody, a 14.2 hand beastly quarter horse, Willie, a now beastly 5-year-old Dutch gelding, and Stormy, her friend’s nearly all white paint gelding with a penchant for finding every mud hole and pee spot in existence.
