Gibson and the Apocalypse: Cute Aggression

Sometimes you just can’t resist.

Most equestrians, also being overall animal lovers, are well acquainted with the human impulse to pet cute-looking creatures, no matter how dangerous they may actually be. I dare you to look at a lion and tell me that your first thought isn’t an urge to shove your hands into his mane to see if it’s as soft as it looks. Look me in the eye and tell me you’ve never thought about hugging a panda.

Turns out this impulse, unlike the majority of Earth’s population, did not get raptured away at the start of Armageddon. And when you combine it with denizens of Hell and a lack of supervision, it can be a recipe for disaster.

I mean, I knew he wasn’t really a goat, but in my defense, farm animals have always been a particular weakness of mine.

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.
