"Domino and Leslie"
6 by 9 inch Watercolor
By Linda L Martin Artist

 Domino is Happily Adopted by  Leslie's Maxwell co-founder of Alder Hill Farm Rescue. Domino is Leslie's personal  trail horse. According to Leslie, Domino was not captured until he was 9. Was was gelded at 12,  He is 14.   Domino was surrendered to Scott Litherland when his adoptive family could not longer keep him.  Leslie also said Domino is wonderful on the trails and has stamina and heart. Domino's training is on going and sometimes when running with the herd at Alder Hill, his Mustang band stallion tendencies tend to come out.  He tends to gather the Alder Hill mares when he is running out at pasture.

One of the unique ways of helping him regain his focus is to remove him from the bigger horses and put him in with the Alder Hill Minis Napoleon and Prince and their friend the mini donkey. In this small enclosure Napoleon is the herd boss.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this painting will go toward the up keep of rescued Mustangs at Alder Hill Farm.
