I finished up on this little painting yesterday. It is for one of my online Ebay groups, ALA, animal loving artists. This painting is on Ebay for five days.
This is a painting of a Gypsy cob (vanner) mare resting under a tree after a long day of traveling. They Gypsy cob horses pull the Gypsies caravans. They were originally bred by the Gypsies to be kind, gentle, strong and willing to pull the heavy caravans. They loved the beauty of the spotted horses and spent generations breeding some of the best. Today they are being bred and raised by many on farms the world over.
