I’ve had horses in my life since I was a child and I did this drawing simply because I love horses. The bond and magic I feel when I’m with them is beyond words. My parents graced me with my first horse when I was 12 years old. I named him “Dad’s Promise,” because my dad had promised me a horse. Christmas morning of that year, I woke to unexpectedly find a halter and apple beneath the tree. I was beside myself with excitement. When asked what color he was, my mother told me he was purple! Upon arriving to the stables, I found, not a purple horse, but a white horse with a cream colored mane and socks. He wore a red bow in his forelock. He was a simple old school horse, but I saw him as the answer to a long-held dream. We loved each other with all our hearts and nothing in my life has given me more joy than the bond I shared with Promise.
