You've seen Keegan in real life?! *jealous* You are a truly privileged person =)
Thanks for the compliments too!

Thank you Flintock. Like many of the artists on this forum, getting a compliment from you is an honor.

Believe it or not, I am currently working on a horse, my own actually. he's a gray and I'm having a tad bit of a hard time with him though. But until I finish that one, here's the latest.
This is one of my best friends Clayton and Chevy. This is my first 'unfinished' charcoal drawing I've left alone. Usually I can't help but blend it all together and I've had a few drawings that ended up ruined. So I reached this point in the drawing and decided to leave it be.

And this is Clayton. i've done this pose before in graphite but was never really satisfied with it so I decided to give it a go in charcoal and like it much better.

Hopefully Tex will be done soon!

Okay so it's not Tex but it's a horse
This is Chance, a Tennessee Walker that belongs to a friend of mine. She's been asking me to draw him for quite some time now, going to pay me and everything, I don't know why I didn't draw him sooner. Glad I finally did though. He kinda came onto the page all on his own.
Still have a hard time keeping my fingers away from it, leaving it unblended. I had a feeling if I tried blending it I'd ruin it.
So here he is.

Charcoal 11x14

And I thought I'd post the reference picture too. If I were looking at it I'd think his face looked a little short. So hopefully the reference photo helps compare.

I Have! I feel very privileged! The way the Theater is built, the stalls are on the second floor and the horses travel up and down a ramp to the stalls. Well, I was on my way up the ramp to get another horse ready for one of the shows, and this big black horse was snorting and walking down the ramp. That was incredibly intimidating and drool worthy at the same time! =D His trainer actually just took him to a show this weekend and I almost got to go with because the trainer is good friends with one of my friends. I was sooo disappointed that I couldn't go!
