Her name is Now Beautiful Woman Who Stands.
According to Karen Sussman, from the International Society for the protection of Mustangs and Burros (ISPMB) she is one of the horses made famous by a gather accident in 2008. Photographer Carol Walker was on hand that day when the herd of the Sand Wash Basin were gathered. Carol provided permission for the painting of this horse from some of her reference photos.

When I first heard of this mare from The Sand Wash Basin, who was adopted by ISPMB, I was very interested in finding out more about this organization. From their website and a conversation with Karen, I discovered that this Is the original organization founded around the work by Velma Johnston, who we all knew as “Wild Horse Annie”. In fact they have a newly published book that you can purchase called “Wild Horse Annie and The Last of The Mustangs” about the Life of Velma Johnston. The book is by David Cruise and Alison Griffiths and can be purchased right off their sight. http://www.ispmb.org/about/wild-horse-annie/ Money from the purchase of the book helps to fund the ongoing projects of the ISPMB.
A portion of the proceeds from this painting, Beautiful Woman Who Stands, will benefit www.ispmb.org
