FINALLY! The new HalfHorse – HalfGator design!

Posted by on February 23, 2009

It’s been a long time coming.  I’ve wanted to work up this award image ever since I heard the story a couple years ago but never could quite get it the way I wanted it.  So now, without further ado, the HalfHorse – HalfGator award:

halfhorsehalfgator2Awarded to Kentuckians primarilly but also others who by action or word exemplify the essence of Kentucky.  What is the essence of Kentucky?  The self reliant and bull headed independence that whipped the British at Vincennes and ripped Kentucky from the strong grasp of Virginia in 1792.

Ah tyrants forge your chains at will
Nay gall this flesh of mine:
Yet thought is free unfettered still,
And will not yield to thine!
Take, take the life that Heaven gave,
And let my heart’s blood stain thy sod;
But know ye not Kentucky’s brave
Will kneel to none but God!

by Mrs. Mary E Wilson Betts
