Happy Adoptions:
This is another one of our Happy Adoptions weeks for the Mustang A Day Challenge. The first painting this week is unique in so many ways. First its of the horse of choice by our Mustang 1oo giveaway winner, Cecilia Steel.
His name is Shancho. He was a TIP horse started by Gerry Gesell. His story is a little different than most. Check out the Mustang A Day Challenge Blog tonight to hear of his unique circumstances and what a special horse he is. We also have 3 other horses that will be featured that have unique and heart warming stories. You wont want to miss one of them. And please share with your friends too.

Mustang Heritage Foundation Art Competition:
As many of you know the Mustang Heritage Foundation is holding a Competition at the end of this month for their Program cover for the Extreme Mustang Makeover. I have been working on a number of works with this in mind for the last month or so. I’ve finally come up with the first of two entries. Since the original painting I wanted to use didn’t fit the format, I decided to make a digital collage of the 3 of the watercolors. And then I have two more weeks to add an additional painting. For a total of 2 for the competition. Here is the composite. For more information on the Mustang Heritage Foundation Activities and the Supreme Extreme Mustang makeover got to
