I'd wanted to do this drawing for years before I actually did draw it. It all started about five years beforehand, I was at a riding stable down the street to photograph another horse when the owner said "by the way you might want to check out this one." His name was Thunder. He was a lovely dapple gray Percheron very recently rescued from an abusive home. I don't know what happened to him, or how he came to be rescued. He was in the round pen when I was there. With the trainer's approval I went in and just spent a little time with him. He was approachable but shy, didn't want to be too close to me so I just stayed on the other side of the pen and respected that. He was very quiet and the looks he would turn around and give me were just soul-piercing. Like dang that horse and seen some things in his life. So that's what I aim to portray in this portrait of a horse I only met once.
