My horse, Bubba, lives at Bits & Bytes Farm. Our friends, Elizabeth and Barry, take great care of him and he’s very happy living there with other OTTB’s (Off-the-Track Thoroughbreds). I also enjoy going to the barn and hanging with horse friends. We encourage each other riding in the ring, we have fun going on trail rides, we chit chat while brushing the horses in the wash rack. We pick and tease one another and crack a lot of jokes. My smart ass friends at the farm crack me up and their endless stories inspired me to create visual images – cartoons – to relay all the horse antics.
This is the first posting of a new cartoon horse series, “Nickerdoodles”. Some cartoons will be single panel but I’m developing others that are simple animations. For years I’ve wanted to do animations or sequential pieces and “Nickerdoodles” will be my forum for experimenting.
I hope you enjoy this series and this first single panel post! We often take the horses on trail rides – a fun outing that both horses and riders always enjoy!
