The United States Lipizzan Federation has begun a new program, “Loving our Lips.” Each day a USLF participating member can record the ways she has engaged with her horse through the myriad of options on the log sheet. This program is a wonderful way for non-showing horse owners to become very engaged with their horse community. I am enjoying recording my log sheets, as I count down the days to the USLF Symposium.
In preparation for my USLF Symposium Art Show, I have begun to do pencil studies that will become paintings.
I did this study as I thought about the Symposium and the new “Loving our Lips” program. I see in the eye of this horse a wisdom that transcends time. I also recognize this look as the one our horses give when they look back and tell us that they love us too.
