The Idea of Order: Pony Shade

A thundercloud in its own right.
Presented by:

Of all the beasts in my life, Woody (the inspiration for this comic) never fails to remind me of just how important and special he is. 😉 A god among beasts, really. And like all pony gods, he’s a fairly temperamental little dude. Anyone else have a small tyrant as well? (Of the four-legged variety).

Go Riding!

Morgane Schmidt is a 37-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 10-year-old Dutch gelding, and Milona DG, a 4 year old KWPN chestnut mare (you can make your own inferences there…).
