    Too late to edit my initial post -


    **2nd prize will be a AU$70 gift voucher for Horse & Hound Artistry
    *3rd prize will be a AU$40 gift voucher for Horse & Hound Artistry

    (It's going to be too hard to pick only one winner, so I'm cutting my losses and offering 2nd and 3rd prizes)

    I think Topanga should win this contest because she was my first horse. She was born deaf, starved by her owners until she came to me. I had her for three wonderful years until she broke her leg two years ago. I would love to have a portrait as a memorial.

    Hi there! I am excited for this opportunity but was just wondering when the deadline for entries is? I just wrote up my entry, perfected my blurb and was just putting on the finishing touches when my computer decided it was a good time to restart for updates. :( ! SO now I am going to have to re-do the entire thing haha.

    Meet Ayla. Ayla has only been with me a short while but she is my dream. I had been searching for ‘the one’ for a while and was beginning to wonder if I would ever find that special equine, and then I saw her. Within 24 hours of her being posted for sale I made plans to go see her and the next evening I bought her. Ayla is one of those rare wild souls. She is the most kind and gentle soul, yet fierce and indomitably strong. She is the epitome of all things wild and free, yet her wild spirit is subtle and quiet. If you don’t look closely you’ll miss it entirely but if you REALLY look she’ll take your breath away. It was one of these breathtaking moments that inspired her name. I looked out and saw her standing in the pasture, mane and tail blowing in the wind, standing straight and strong, nose to the wind, and ears pricked foreword watching something across the fields. In that moment she somehow managed to capture the pure essence of nature at its rawest and most beautiful and I instantly thought of the primal heroine in Jean Auels Earths Children series. Jean Auels Ayla is the essence of the wild feminine, and that is what my Ayla is. I believe that Ayla deserves to be immortalized in one of your portraits because of this rare wild essence that is so quickly disappearing from our daily lives.

    Well, where do I start? Tanoka is the first horse I've ever owned. Although nearly trained, she's been there for me. I love here. She is gentle, loving, and is a very funny little girl. She's the sweetest mare. Tanoka has gone on trail rides, and has a great personality. I believe this photo captures a lot of expression and would be a great choice for a pastel drawing. This would be the greatest thing ever and me (and my pony) would love it. I'd keep it till the day I die. She is my true friend and the only person I know who doesn't judge a book by his color. Is she too cute or what? I would squeal if I could get this drawing
