Denali's Gift - Done!

Remember way back last November when I asked you all to contribute to Denali's gift when she was scheduled to be euthanized? And then through a series of miracles she ended up making a turnaround and she is still alive and healthy today? I had an enormous response to my request, so much so that I had to take down the donation button after only one day!

Well, many months later the commission I made is finally finished. The artist is Sandy Rabinowitz, whom I am sure many of you are familiar with even if you don't know it directly - just open any Dressage Today and you'll see her artwork on the back page in the Solutions section. She also does loads of artwork for them in terms of articles as well. Sandy was one of our boarders at our barn in Connecticut, the one I was moving to when I first started this blog. As an added bonus, she's a fellow barefoot enthusiast ;)


Here it is!




Thanks SO MUCH to everyone who contributed to it! I already have confirmation that it has made Denali's Mom cry and that they are already looking for where it will hang on the wall!

More like bawl! I love it. I love it so much. I love you. I love all of you!! It's going on our wall in our living room next to our black and white photo of Mt. McKinley. My husband is shocked that 'strangers' (Honey there are no strangers in the horse world) would do this for me. Thank you. Thank you. THANK YOU!!!!! I love you all!!!!
