My horses, dogs and cats.
Horses have been a lifelong fascination for me. I know that would not come as a surprise if you've gotten this far into my web site! I thought I would share with you some pictures of my horses and pets. I find it very rewarding to be able to paint your pets and horses, knowing how much they mean to you. They bring so much joy to my life.
I own 2 mares, 1 gelding as far as full-sized horses go. I also own an oversized mini mare (for the grandkids) a senior chihuahua and a chiweenie! I also have 2 formally feral barn kitties that are now my cuddle bugs! My mares are a chestnut Arabian, Abbey, who I've owned since birth. She is now 29 yrs. old and doing great! She is kind and smart and quirky and I love her! She is more or less retired- not due to lameness or arthritis, but mainly because I can't keep 3 horses ridden and exercised so she gets to be a pasture potato. :)
Two of my riding horses are TWH. The mare is a stocky, sweet, grey sabino. She's the first to meet you in the pasture. My favorite activity is to ride trails. Besides painting and spending time with my family, I enjoy trail riding most of all!
My gelding is that big (16.1 hands) gorgeous creature with unusual coloring (pictured below). He was called a strawberry roan when I bought him but he is not as 'red' as what I would imagine a strawberry roan to be and I have since decided he is a liver chestnut roan. He also has sabino-type markings. He kind of glimmers a silvery tone. He is gorgeous and a fun, fun trail horse. He is smooth and sensitive and likes to go! I bought him in January 2015 and he has given me some wonderful trail rides which I think he enjoys as much as I do. My grey mare is trail-ridden by my daughter and am so thankful for these two awesome trail horses!
