The horse in this 8 x 10 oil on canvas is Zippy, one of the foals I raised, and subsequently tracked down and "extracted" after he was retired from racing. I placed him with a friend, to whom he's naturally endeared himself. Apparently he's endeared himself to the barn cats too. When his new person posted a photo of their adventures, I had to ask her if I could paint from them!


I held a caption contest for the painting, and got some great ideas! One of my favourites was, "Tonight, We Ride!" Ultimately I took that idea and went with a more festive title.
