I've got some fun news about my latest horse painting called "Where's the Peep?"

What horse person doesn't recognize this face? This is much loved face from a really fun perspective otherwise known as "The Mooching For Peeps Face". The inspiration for this painting came from a Hanovarian mare, named Wrose, that I had the privilege of training for close to two years. She is a real character and her owner, Amanda, discovered that Wrosie had a penchant for Peeps. You know..those marshmallow chicks that come out around Easter? It seems they are also available for a lot of other holidays so Amanda and I would load up after the holidays when the ghost Peeps, bunny Peeps, Santa Peeps, etc.. all go on sale. Wrose could hear the subtle rustle of the cellophane that comes on the Peeps packaging and she would just go nuts nickering for her most favorite treat ever. This, my friends, is the face of a Peeps moocher.
