10.75 x 14.25" Oil pastel sgraffito of my brother's horse Jake. "Jake" is a rescue horse who was rehabilitated and retrained with loving hands over a 3 year period by Dr. Mike Ackermann to become a competition hurdle-jumping english-riding horse with a happy spirited demeanor. Jake has quite the personality - he is very business-like, he doesn't much like to be fussed over, he likes to do his job, get a quick pat and a treat, and go back out to the pasture. He loves molasses and apple slice sandwiches more than just about any other horse his caregivers have ever met, and he grinds his teeth when his rider/handler is irritating him!
