“The Babysitter -or- The Long Suffering Gelding”


I painted this older draft gelding and his young charge as a charity benefit for the Colorado Horse Rescue Network, a non profit serving Colorado and surrounding areas.  This group is a wonderful organization working on the front lines to intercept horses headed for the slaughter pipeline through direct owner buy outs, auction purchases, and the education of horse owners and the public.  Two of the most “at risk” categories of horses are the aged and the very young and untrained.  So, this painting is a tribute to those two groups, and to those who thanklessly work to save them.
