The Idea of Order: Definition Time!

Perhaps Merriam-Webster says differently, but I think I’m more accurate…

Today’s comic retread was inspired by Wilson, who very casually laid down in his paddock yesterday afternoon and then proceeded to roll half his body (hind legs) *into* his stall while the other half remained outside.
Right next to the panels. 🫣
I just had to look away and let Darwinism do its thing. As of this morning he had not managed to take himself out of the gene pool, but the day is young. 🫣🙄
I won’t even ask if any of you all can relate since I think this is inherent to horse ownership. 🤣 Feel free to share your tales of woe though!

Morgane Schmidt is, among many things, an equestrian who still hasn’t quite decided what she wants to be when she grows up. Author of Life with Horses Is Never Orderly, she knows all about the madness that comes with the equine territory, having owned and competed horses in eventing and dressage for years. A lifelong fan of the classic equestrian cartoons penned by internationally renowned artist Norman Thelwell, she began her own comic series in 2011, sharing deftly funny reflections on life with horses on Horse Nation as well as her personal website. A native Floridian, she spent a decade in Reno, NV, where she was able to confirm her suspicion that snow is utterly worthless (she has since regained her sense and moved back to the Florida swamp). Though she has run the gamut of equestrian disciplines, her favorite is dressage. She has completed 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 12-year-old Dutch gelding, and Milona DG, a 6 year old KWPN chestnut mare (you can make your own inferences there…).
