Red Feather Equine Sanctuary in Winston Salem, NC is on a mission to advance equine welfare through education, access and advocacy. This limited print run directly supports their efforts and operations.
Months ago, I had the opportunity to visit and co-create this art with the sanctuary's first inhabitant: Mario.
Mario is a former racehorse, known as an Off the Track Thoroughbred (OTTB). He was rescued at a young age after injury by the founder of Red Feather, Allison.
As I walked around the sanctuary and met some of the residents - Mario gently approached the outside of the barn while we were inside and began "cribbing".
Red Feather volunteer and personal close friend Brooke explained to me that this is a behavior developed as a stress coping mechanism by many racehorses in response to being stalled the majority of each day. When a horse cribs, they bite down on wood (in this case, the barn stall) and gulp in a breath of air which releases endorphins. It's a self-soothing, nervous habit - in the similar way that nail-biting is for humans.
While Mario was vulnerably self-soothing, the light hit his eye just right, and the rest is history.
Originally only one print was offered to the public at The Red Feather Art Show at DELURK which is viewable through November 2023. It quickly sold, and with requests for more I decided to open up this limited fine art print run through the end of November to continue supporting the sanctuary.
