Mesquite


This little filly caught my eye.  Her white blaze is unique making her markings, one of a kind.  She is a red roan and her head will most likely stay dark and her body will get lighter as she gets older.  You can see how her wildness is overcome by her inquisitive nature.  Seeing this young filly made for, "A Painting Day".

Lovely painting Ruth. The detail helps me to feel her young soft fur.
