Retired Racehorse Metro Meteor Paints for Charity

A combination of two of my favorite things: horses and art! It doesn’t get any better than this, does it?

Racehorses Paintings Compared to Jackson Pollock : Discovery News.

The famous racehorse art is being compared to famous abstract impressionist paintings. Racehorse Metro Meteor is now retired and painting after bad knees ended his racing career.

His owners taught him to paint with treat training techniques. After Metro’s success in painting, his owners realized that this could help all racehorses. Money earned from Metro’s paintings goes to a racehorse adoption program to help retired horses find a safe haven. Horses are rehabilitated and placed into adoptive homes.

I wonder if I can teach any of my horses to paint? This horse is amazing! Not only is he getting crafty, but his art is helping fellow retired racehorses stay out of slaughterhouses and auction. Kudos to Metro and his wonderful owners!
