Slicker Reunion

I see this print everyday – multiple times a day, even. It hangs on the wall above the printer in the Quarter Horse News (QHN) office in Fort Worth, Texas. As QHN Art Director, I print a lot. But even though I see “Slicker Reunion” so often, I never tire of it. I always see something in it I didn’t see the day before.

Shoofly, You Can Bother Me Any Time!

It’s a busy season here at the Cowboy Publishing Group offices in Fort Worth, Texas. At Quarter Horse News we’re busy with Futurity season coverage and year-end marketing pushes. It’s been more than a few weeks since I’ve been able to continue my year-long journey through the art here in the office, but something lovely came to me a few weeks and I thought I’d share.

The Evolution of the Cowboy – 1933 Jo Mora

There is a framed poster in the Cowboy Publishing Group office kitchen. This poster has fascinated me from the first moment I saw it. First, it is big! Second, its detail is on a level that can only be described as mind melting, but in a good way. The poster, “Evolution of the Cowboy”, is a second edition of a rodeo poster Uruguayan-born artist Joseph Jacinto “Jo” Mora illustrated for the California Rodeo Salinas in 1933.

Bits & Bites: ICHA Futurity & Aged Event

I'm currently in Nampa, Idaho, for the Idaho Cutting Horse Association (ICHA) Futurity and Aged Event. I love to experience local restaurants while traveling, so I decided to hit up a Nampa favorite, the American restaurant Brick 29 Bistro.

No Turning Back: The Art of Veryl Goodnight

I recently had the pleasure of attending a preview party for the new Veryl Goodnight exhibit at the National Cowgirl Museum & Hall-of-Fame. Goodnight will be inducted into the National Cowgirl Hall-of-Fame this fall, and after spending about an hour with some of her works, I can see why.

Bits & Bites: NCHA Summer Spectacular

The National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) Summer Spectacular is a marathon of a show, and it can wear you down if you let it. It’s important to give yourself a break, even if it’s just for lunch or dinner. Fort Worth, Texas, is my home, so I didn’t need to do much research to find a good spot to grab a bite to eat.

Pokémon GO Takes Over

PonytaPokémon like Ponyta are capturing the attention of the world, and the horse industry can use that to its advantage!OK. I admit it. I was Pokémon obsessed as a pre-adolescent in elementary and middle school. I remember it like it was yesterday. I handed over a wrinkled dollar bill in exchange for my first card – Ponyta. Ah, the butterflies...
