I had some sad news of a horse, "Mare" (Mack's Little Texas) that died on New Year's Day. The post today is a tribute to "Mare". She in many ways has had a charmed life. She lived in the prairie lands of Colorado bordering Wyoming. She was the head mare to a small herd of horses and mules. Mare was also a beautiful horse that held your gaze when looking out to the pasture. I painted Mare a few years ago from a reference photo taken by Tori Seavey at Snowy Ridge Ranch. Tori is a photographer, rancher, leather artists, horse trainer, mom, wife and all around nice person. Tori has also started a new blog and I think you will find it intriguing to read the day to day activities of ranch life on the plains. Click HERE for Tori's Blog. Sadly I say good-bye to Mare. May she find a new herd to lead in heaven. Meeting Tori and her herd has made for, "A Painting Day".
