Horse painted self-portrait
Justin is a nine-year old 1500-pound Friesian horse that began painting two years ago.His owner, Adonna Combs, noticed that Justin would often steal her riding whip and begin to draw in the sand. She soon added a brush to the end of the whip and they were off on art experiment that has now landed Justin in regional galleries and drawn international attention.
But even Adonna was taken aback by this one. A small red splotchy painting that closely resembled a horse. Perhaps it was unintentional. Perhaps not."And I told everybody about him painting a self portrait, everyone is skeptical and then they see it and say 'It is a horse!"Like Michelangelo's Pieta it now sits behind protective glass. And like any fine artist Justin always signs his paintings by stamping his hoof in paint.

I could try that with my gelding, but he might eat the brush!
