It’s called fashion, look it up.
They may have come into play as early as 2020, but this lovely accessory remains a staple of any apocalyptic wardrobe (and kind of necessary, what with all the nuclear pollution and smoke billowing out of bottomless pits and fumes from the Holy Fire that was flung to the earth and such).
When you’re a very food-motivated horse, however, sometimes you find additional uses for this particular accoutrement.
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.
