by both myself and, rather unfortunately, my horse…
Greetings, my friends!
I realize it has been a few weeks since I’ve had any new content for you, but this week I not only have a NEW comic, but also some exciting news (no, I have not yet figured out how to eradicate Winter; apologies). 🤔😂
This last month I signed a contract with Horse and Rider Books (Trafalgar Square Press) to publish a book of my comics for Fall 2021! This is the same publisher that produces the lovely Fergus books. 😁 I couldn’t be more excited to be working with them and have been busy laying out the snark…er, chapters, and creating some all new comics to include.
Thank you all for your awesome support and encouragement; it’s what has kept me at this for the last 10 (?!) years. ♥️
Gushing aside, here’s this week’s comic! It’s about horses accepting challenges….though in a somewhat less positive way than one might hope. 😱😂
Morgane Schmidt is a 36-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 9-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.
