Friesian Majesty

Friesian Majesty

These Friesian Stallions running free remind me of power and majesty personified by the image of the horse.

This Kiger Stallion is challenging any other stallions who attempt to take his mares.

Kiger Stallions Challenge

Kiger Stallions Challenge

This Kiger Stallion from the Steen Mountains in Oregon is being challenged by another stallion for his band of mares.  He has warned the other stallion once by loud whinnying and standing firmly to hold him at bay.  If that is not sufficient, he will charge strongly and chase his challenger away from the herd of mares to show him they are not available to be taken.  Anyone seeing this action is awed by the power and majesty of this Kiger stallion.

 

 

The Last Battle of the Third TX Cavalry

The Last Battle of the Third TX Cavalry

Serving as the rear guard for General John Hood’s shattered rebel army as it fled South ahead of its victorious Yankee pursuers, the Third Texas Cavalry ambushed the enemy at Sugar Creek. In the early morning hours, the Cavalry charged them at a gallop and pressed them back two to three miles and held them long enough for General Hood’s ragged command to cross the Tennessee River.

This image is a depiction of the last fight of the Third Texas Cavalry in the Civil War.

Jullyen El Jamaal at Liberty

Jullyen El Jamaal at Liberty

We lost this famous stallion, Jullyen El Jamaal, of Varian Arabians this past year. He was not there for their Summer Jubilee this past summer but he will always be remembered as the sire of so many famous Arabian horses. If you get a chance to purchase the Collectors Edition DVD “The Legacy of Sheila Varian,” please do so. It is a movie all horse lovers will enjoy.

Papillon Sparkle

Papillon Sparkle

This Papillon belongs to my niece and he was sitting on her sofa when I saw an image I wanted to draw. His look was so “sparkly” I had to draw it and title this image Papillon Sparkle. His real name is Benny.

Kiger Majesty

Kiger Majesty

The Kiger mustangs are from the southeastern part of Oregon in the Steens Mountain range. This Kiger mustang stallion was so beautiful and regal he needed to be memorialized in a drawing. If his band of mares were approached by another male horse, he would arch his neck and pin his ears back to threaten and intimidate whoever dared to come near. If that wasn’t sufficient, he would paw the ground and stir up dust like the drawing shows. If that still wasn’t enough for them to leave, he would charge and chase them away or fight until the enemy was defeated.

Who’s My Daddy?

Who’s My Daddy?

An Arabian foal and his mother stand together looking toward the stallions’ pasture. I could see the question in his eyes, “which one is he, Mom?.” The week known as Summer Jubilee at Sheila Varian’s Ranch in Arroyo Grande, CA, has a walk among the new foals on Sunday. People who want to purchase and photographers who are taking pictures can walk among the mares and foals (normally not allowed).

Just Another Day on the Ranch

Just Another Day on the Ranch

This 4-year-old boy named Joel walks his pony, Peanut Butter, back to the barn after his ride. His vulnerability and innocence called to me to draw. We should all have memories like this.

The Pause That Refreshes

The Pause That Refreshes

This dun mustang mare enjoys a quiet moment to pause for a drink from the Salt River. This short time for solitude will end soon and she’ll be joined by the other Salt River mustangs.
