2011 Supreme Extreme Makeover Mustang Miles
and Trainer Robert Carlson
6 by 9 inches Watercolor
I haven't seen any recent photos of Miles until this past weekend. Its just amazing what a special horse Miles has turned out to be. When he first came to Robert Carlson he would kick at anything strange or different, which most of the time included Robert, and anything in the round pen with him. Now in just a couple of weeks Robert and Miles will be competing in the Supreme Extreme Mustang Make over in Fort Worth Texas.
Miles is like a completely different horse. Robert and Miles are going out on the trails together and Miles is facing new things with bravery where he once reacted to in fear. Thats a great accomplishment for the horse and a great credit to his trainer. This painting tonight is a close up of Miles as Robert is riding him up a short steep incline. Miles is boldly going up it, proving the bond of trust that exists between them.
