Classy Runnin', ACEO, Oil Painting

We took the horses back to their mountain pasture on Saturday. It was sad as we know how much we're going to miss them from here but two acres is not much of a place to keep horses. We planted grass but they'd eaten it up faster than it can grow back. If we keep them here, they'll have nothing but dirt next year. We're going to plant more grass this year, and try to thicken up what we got growing this year.

Anyway, back to this painting, it's what Class did when she was turned loose! She was so happy to be able to run and run. It felt good to her. After all, she was bred to run, she's a retired race horse. I wouldn't be surprised if she's still running, just for the sheer joy of it!

The title bar of this aceo is a link to an organization that rescues race horses. I don't have any personal experience with them but if you want to learn more about thoroughbred rescue, there you go.
