"Mischeivous!"

This is a portrait of my first horse, Shamrock. He taught me ALMOST everything I need to know about horses! Especially, CLOSE THE GATE!!!
Many times he would let himself loose, sometimes opening other horses stalls and letting them loose as well...
He was a character! I think everyone who has had a chestnut knows there is special brand of naughtiness and attitude that goes with the territory.
He didn't bite, but in the photo that I painted this from, he was stealing a carrot, all the while keeping a close eye on Mommy to see if she was watching....

I was.
