Springs Baby

As you can see I do like to paint horses and I'm well acquainted with them. Years ago I owned a pretty dark bay thoroughbred that I showed on the flat and over fences.

This shy protective little mare and her baby are quarter horses from the Douglas Lake Ranch area of B.C. and are done in acrylics on illustration board.

Sweet Michael

Michael was a very sweet horse that I used to lease prior to buying my own horse many years ago. Other than the one bad habit of doing a 360 degree turn at a canter if startled, he was a pleasure to ride.
