Now THAT’s scary!
Gibson is what I like to refer to as “selectively spooky.” He’s completely unfazed by things like tarps, flags, balls, noisy props, weird looking jumps or other things that might logically startle a prey animal. He has no issue touching and even playing with these strange objects, usually approaching them with eagerness at best and wary curiosity at worst.
But if someone moves a chair he’s already seen about twenty-seven times a few feet to the left? HEAVEN FORBID. Suddenly that is the most terrifying thing in the world. I once saw this weirdo spook at a large yellow leaf blowing by in the wind.
Happy Halloween, fellow Horsemen!
Jenny Kammerer is a professional artist, video producer and frustrated Philadelphia sports fan who’s been in the saddle since the age of four. When she was 16, she met her Paint/QH/Draft cross Gibson (aka Guitar Solo) as a green two-year-old, and quickly settled into the training side of equestrianism, drawing inspiration from the techniques of Pat Parelli and other natural horsemanship teachers. Known for most of her childhood as both the awkward artsy one and the weird horse girl, she always seemed destined to draw nonsensical horse cartoons. In addition to her independent illustration work, she currently teaches painting classes at Painting With A Twist and produces short-form documentaries that can be seen on www.Horse.TV.
