Ashland Creek Press Blog – Equamore

A few weeks ago, Midge Raymond and I visited Equamore, a horse rescue sanctuary here in Ashland.  Midge wrote a wonderful article for the Ashland Daily Tidings to share the work about Equamore and all wonderful things they do. It was featured today in the paper, and also on her Blog. We are heading back on Friday to take more photos of these amazing horses, so look for some Equamore horse paintings in the near future….after I finish 2 more Sanctuary One paintings (Jigsaw and Cookies) and a sweet pug from Central Coast Pug Rescue!  http://www.ashlandcreekpress.com/blog/2012/11/26/how-to-spot-animal-abuse-and-how-to-help/
