Horse Drawing in White Charcoal by Theresa Paden

White Charcoal Horse Drawing
"Her Blue Eye"
By Theresa Paden

12 x 9"
White charcoal on gray Canson paper

 This is my horse, Mountain Music (we call her Music). 
She's a Missouri Fox Trotter with one blue eye and one brown. 
Music has such a smooth gait and is so fun to ride. Having been
abused by a previous owner who would twist her ears, she is 
quite head shy. Because of that, it takes a little more time to bridle 
her, but she is well worth it. She has a favorite place on her 
neck that she loves to have scratched and she makes 
the funniest faces when I scratch her there!

Farewell For Now, My Friend, Our Gentle Giant

Kind, Loyal, Gentle, Brave, and Strong
Farewell Chief, You Are in My Heart

Chief was 26 years old and lived the past ten years
  with us. When we got him, he was so timid,
 he stood with his head in the corner of his stall, 
hoping to not be noticed. Soon he realized he was going
to be loved and treated well, and he came out
of his shell. He was a very large guy, standing 18 hands
if measured at the withers. So powerful, but such a gentle 
spirit and such a good boy. He was always alpha 
in our herd, even over the mares, simply because of 
his size. My husband and I have had many fun adventures, 
he on Chief and I on my horse, riding all over the
hills and valleys near our home. Chief was 
Tennessee Walker and had an incredibly smooth gait. 
He loved going out on the trail and exploring.
Chief came down with laminitis a while back and we
finally had to have him put down today. 
My heart is broken. Having to say goodbye was 
one of the hardest things I've ever had to do.
But I know I will see him again someday in heaven, 
where he is right now, running through 
green meadows, eating carrots, and gobbling up as 
much of his favorite food, senior feed, as he can.
Here are some photos of Chief and my husband,
through the years.
