I Am the Water...

I quietly lap against the shore,
I greedily rush across the rocks;
I am a mighty and fierce wave,
Yet a light and gentle drop.


These are a few of my drawings of horses. It has taken me 6 years to be where I am at in my art, mainly cause it is most all self taught. I enjoy it though, especially when drawing my favorite animals.

An Early Morning Song...

Softly the wind began to blow
While the earth was still asleep,
The rain then fell all but slow;
A song of early morning started to arise.
The leaves danced
And the wind chimes sung,
The rain drops pranced,
Which made the flowers laugh;
A song of early morning begins to arise.
The morning came
And awoke the sleeping earth,
The wind was then tame
And the rain became a mist;
Then a song of the early morning arose,
Then a song of early morning arose.

Mr. Darcy...

No, Mr. Darcy is not the guy that every girl dreams of. He is my mini horse! This little guy is my "best buddy", and is just a ton of fun! At times though he can be a handful, but that's why I enjoy him.
He is a (almost) 3 year old mini stallion and he stands at about 34". In the pics above he looks like a chestnut with his winter coat, but in summer when I shave him he turns into a silver bay. I bought him when he was one and boy was he a mess! His hair was all tangled and matted, his hooves were too long and he knew nothing, not even how to lead.
Right now he's just a "pet", but I am trying to train him to pull a cart, without a cart or harness. So for now I'm ground driving him, he does however know a few tricks! He will shake your hand and rear, right now I am trying to teach him how to bow and smile. My little horse is a great friend, and I love having him around.

A bit about me....

I am a 17 year old christian, home schooled girl. I love horses and my pets (all 22 of them!) among the huge list of animals is my mini horse and/or my best buddy. We also have dogs, cats, pigs, chickens, bunnies, a gerbil and fish.
Some of my favorite pass times are reading, writing, drawing, taking pictures, hanging out with my friends and playing with my horse. I read all kinds of books, I'll read whatever I find that sounds good. A lot of what I write are creative stories and poems, they're nothing fancy, but I enjoy writing them. I am still learning how to draw, and most of what I learn is either self taught, from books or hints an tips I get from my mom. My photos are mainly of plants or any random object that I see and like. Most all of my friends that I hang out with are from my church youth group, and I love spending my time with them. Playing with my horse is really just running around with him or sitting in his stall to hang out.Posted by Picasa
