Minnow visits the Ryerss Farm For Aged Equines

Painting Pony Chincoteague Minnow paints at Ryerss Farm

Last weekend Painting Pony visited the Ryerss Farm for their annual Family Fun Day.

Ryerss is a non-profit in Chester County, Pennsylvania that cares for aged, and abused or injured horses by providing a home where they can spend their golden years out to pasture.  The horses at Ryerss are never worked, go to auction or are used for experiments.  They simply spend their days grazing and enjoying life with their friends on the farm.

Painting Pony has been big supporters of Ryerss since the very beginning, and it’s one of the charity organizations that we donate a percentage of our sales to each year.

In fact, when I was a kid our local 4-H club used to visit Ryerss every year to groom the old horses on the farm. So it was fun to go back with my own “aged equine” (Minnow is 21 this year) and help to raise money for their farm.

Both Minnow and Ammo the Dachshund drew big crowds during each of our performances throughout the day. Minnow painted 3 original works of art, which are now available for purchase in our online shop.

Misty of Chincoteague Night Light // Painting Pony

Recently added to our online shop we now have Misty of Chincoteague Night Lights!

Many horse loving children grow up reading the classic book, Misty of Chincoteague by Marguerite Henry. This vintage read sparked a love of horses for many, myself included! Our Misty of Chincoteague Breyer Night Light is the perfect gift for any horse lover, no matter what age!

Each light is made out of a once-loved Misty Breyer Model. While each model has been loved a little differently, they may include scuffs and scratches but I’ve given them a new life by turning them into a battery operated Night Light!

The Super Painting Ponies

Halloween is one of my favorite “Holidays”, mostly in part because I have always loved creating costumes. None of my animals are safe during Halloween time, and even the ponies got in on the fun the other day as they so kindly allowed me to dress them up as Super Ponies!

The Super Painting Ponies // Super Heroes

Our adorable trio make for some pretty striking Super Heroes!

Our two brothers, Blitz and Boomer, made for a particularly adorable pair. And I’m pretty sure Blitz was convinced that younger brother Boomer was dressed as his sidekick.

Of course somehow Boomer always manages to steal the show…..

But Blitz was determined to be top Super Pony, and he showed us just how fast he can fly!

I’m pretty sure if I was in need of rescuing I’d want these Super Heroes to save me!

Meanwhile on the sidelines, adorable Ammo was in charge of all costume changes….
