The story of Opie and his Mom, Poppy, always makes me smile. Poppy arrived at Redwings Horse Sanctuary with her baby, Sebastian, and four other rescue horses in tow. They were all rescued from a slaughter pen in Texas. When Poppy arrived, the team noticed that her tummy was getting bigger and bigger. Turns out, she was pregnant! Baby Opie was the most wonderful little surprise, and everyone was over the moon when he was born. He has the softest fur and the cutest little donkey nose. To make this happy ending even happier, the family that was set to adopt Poppy decided to take Opie too, so they get to stay together forever!
I painted Opie during Redwings Grand Opening Party while he was relaxing in his stall. He made a great subject and kept coming over to check on my progress. I hope he approved of the final product, and I hope you love it too!
