Gibson and the Apocalypse: The Bottomless Pit

It’s gotta stop somewhere, right?…RIGHT?!

Remember being a kid and thinking that giant pits of quicksand that sucked up anyone who put so much as a foot into them were going to be a much bigger problem than they actually were? As it turns out, they’re a fairly prevalent feature of the apocalyptic landscape. I guess wildly fluctuating temperates, endless days of violent weather and frequent surface disturbance can have that sort of effect on the ground.

Fortunately for equestrians, this is just what it’s like to get your horse in from the field in the middle of winter.

Side note, it is SUPER fun keeping a Paint horse who loves mud and grows a ridiculously thick winter coat clean this time of year.

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.
