Here is the finished painting of the two paint horses. I tried to model the shape of the horses a little more, and defined the legs with the background dirt. I enjoyed this painting a lot, something about the colors of the horses standing side by side, it was fun to paint, not sure what is next, I would like to try and paint larger....different size paper... I will let you know, and thanks to Uncle Jeff for letting me see through his camera, can't wait to get more of his pictures!

I have linked an article about veterinarians in Kentucky who are scheduling free gelding of male horses to address the isssue of overpopulation of horses, and reduce unwanted horses, sort of another angle on horse rescue! Check it out.
