For the next few days I will be painting for Alder Hill Farm. As you may already know the Rescue in Missouri has well over 100 horses to care for in various stages of training and adoption. Included are a number of Mustangs.  Alder Hill Farm was formed as a non-profit in 2004 when Leslie and Craig Maxwell decided that their life's work would be to rescue horses. They stepped into it as a full time mission when they found themselves saving 64 appaloosa and paint foals that were bi products of premarin production. Among those foals were 5 half mustangs who's dam's were used in production.  Tonight's painting reference was taken from the archive of those premarin foals. This is Frost as a baby.  Frost is available for adoption at AFH pending application approval.You can read the rest of the Alder Hill Farm story and learn more about what they do by going to

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this painting and subsequent prints will go to Alder Hill Farm
