Why, thank you, Tania! Long time ago now. He was born on the Shonkin River east of the Great Divide here in in Montana. He stood an honest 16.3 hands. Shonk won me a lot of $5 bets on how far he could back up in a straight line.
At that time we had 24 Morgan mares, 3 geldings and a Morgan stud horse on the place. Shonkin lived to 21 years of age.
I missed a lot of opportunites to do more personal Scraperboard renderings back then. The commercial aspect made our income, but you can get caught up in all that and ignore the more enjoyable type artwork. Don't let that happen to you.
