This drawing will be auctioned to raise money for the preservation of the Wild Horses of Abaco

I have been told That Nunki is the last remaining descendant of the very first horses Christopher Columbus  brought to the Americas. I will be painting her and her last foal Spica for the

  Her age is estimated to be 17 years old and there is a group that is working to find  stallions and surrogate mares  so that they can harvest her eggs and bring back the herd into a preserved area of Abaco Island, Bahamas.

I am working on a series of drawings and watercolors  that will lead to an oil painting  Of Nunki and her foal Spica. These paintings will help raise funds for the preservation and restoration of the herd.
