I can hardly believe that the Supreme Extreme Mustang Makeover is coming up This weekend in Ft. Worth Texas! Tonights painting is of  Madeleine LeClerc's Dessert First(Desi). This adorable little chestnut mare was full of surprises when Madeleine began her training back in May.

First she was the least shy and most accepting and genuinely wanted to go to work. She also turned out to be not only the Alpha mare but the Alpha horse when she was turned out with the other horses at liberty for the first time. She has personality and a cute streak that Photographer Amy Spivey has caught over and over during this training period with Madeleine.

Desi being Bold.
This mustang has only
been in training since May
with Madeleine LeClerc.

Desi is small in stature( 13.2) yet big and bold of heart. She doesn't back down until the job is done. Madeleine has  practiced all sorts of useful activities with her, from trail and obstacle work, to  cattle  and last weekend  little Desi was in her first hunter show. She placed in all for  her events, proving her versatility.

Special Thanks to Amy Spivey for all of the reference photos of the Supreme Extreme Mustangs. See more of Amy's work at Lightning Bug Creek Photography on facebook:  http://www.facebook.com/LBCPhotography
