A very elegant mare.

As I was painting this mare to night what struck me was her eyes. And the way she is built she looks just like Barbie, Jimmy Darksand's mare. She is 4 years old and one of 7 young Sand Wash Basin HMA mares at Canyon City in their holding Facility. In the spring of 2013 I will be hopefully painting the other 6 young mares in hopes of getting their info and helping get them adopted as well. They come in a varity of colors and I really cant wait to see them. For now though we really need to get this mare into a good home or sanctuary. If you cant adopt her.. pass this around to your friends. Thank you so much for your help. This sweet mare's info is below:

She seems to be a very nice mover.
