Sandman - horse portrait

6 X 6 oil on linen
Check with Artist for Availability

Ever since I was a little girl and first saw Roy Rogers on his gorgeous palomino, Trigger, I wanted a golden horse with a flaxen mane.
I even bred my favorite mare, Miss Jack, THREE TIMES to a fabulous Palomino named Mr Photostac Mac. Those breedings resulted in first a sorrel filly and then 2 black fillies. All gorgeous, but not my palomino. I kept the sorrel (PJ, Dandy's dam), sold the other two and gave up ever getting my "Trigger".
My friend, Jan, owns THIS pretty boy, Sandman. Sandman's life started off rough, but it appears as if it will end really happy. With Jan's patience and great instruction from Trista and Clinton Anderson, Sandman is turning into a really good horse that happens to be truly nice on the eyes, too.
Every good dog deserves a home and so does every good horse...
Proverbs 15:31
Whoever heeds life-giving correction will be at home among the wise.

Lovely painting: I especially like the movement you captured in the mane, and that sunny color.

Thanks for sharing your stories and verses, too. Blessings.
