Bonus was rescued from the kill buyer's lot. Her mother had shipped and Bonus had no value, so she was left in a pet with no food or water. She was only 4 weeks old, and her nose was covered in terrible blisters from dehydration. When they tried to give her water, her suck reflex was gone. Spring Creek Horse Rescue took her back with them, where they expected her to die, but at least she could know a bit of kindness and love before she did, but she lived. The rescue was there to pick up 40 other horses, and #41 was a surprise, so they named her Bonus.
I am still accepting commissions during the Year of 52 Rescues, they just might take me a little bit longer to complete. I paint from a photograph, and I've been known to paint humans too!
