About This Painting and Kizzyr:
Kizzy had multiple owners and was finally surendered in 2011 because she could not be ridden. Her legs are bowed, throwing her weight off which causes her to collapse under the weight of the saddle and rider. Kizzy was also malnourished and in need of serious dental care. She is now fully retired with a herd of three other mares and a gelding friend. She is still quite fearful of being separated from her pasture mates, due to her history of multiple living situations. This painting is titled "Kizzy in Reflection because I flipped the image in Photoshop, at the time, not realizing that her markings would be reversed - so, this is how Kizzy sees herself!
Equamore is a non-profit horse rescue and sanctuary in Southern Oregon, approximately 5 miles from the downtown area of Ashland. There are currently 44 rescue horses being cared for at Equamore, along with 6 privately boarded horses. It is a beautiful place with wonderful volunteers, and the need for funds continues to grow due to the economic situation of some horse owners. If you are traveling to Ashland, you should definitely take a tour at Equamore and see all the wonderful horses they have rescued and rehabilitated back to health.
