You're right Leo. You're right. Perhaps that has something to do with Gracie's birthday falling on the same day as a holiday a lot of people seem to celebrate, but yes, I don't tend to forget Miss Gracie's birthday. Gracie's birth was kind of a big deal, because her mom, Twine, had aborted he first foal, so the safe arrival of a particular little chestnut was extra-special. I guess Gracie was just extra-special from day one! I finished the above painting yesterday, of the big mare on High Goblin Alert. ;-)
Tiny filly has grown into tall mare, but lost none of her playful, gregarious personality along the way. Happy Birthday to my favourite chestnut mare. :-)
