Week Twelve: Good Doer

You don't hear that expression much these days - a 'good doer' is a horse that eats well! It may sound like an obvious thing to the non-horsey, thanks to that stupid expression, "hungry as a horse," but in fact horses are pretty finicky. Jubie's Baby Girl is quite the good eater. Usually the foals start to want to stick their noses into Mom's tub at 2-3 weeks of age; this filly was less than a week old! No wonder she's such a good size!

This is 5 x 7 oil on Raymar cotton canvas panel. Unfortunately I haven't really finished it yet, as I had a pretty crazy day, doing some prep for an upcoming show and getting a load of hay, on top of my usual barn duties. Considering I wasn't sure I'd be able to post anything at all today, I'm hoping you'll overlook that! I will finish it, and post it again when it's done.

Twelve weeks! That's three months! Where does the time go?
