Local horse inspires kindness in local community.

An oil painting of Louis, a white horse who has turned his head to look at us. He is standing in a green field with trees behind him and dandelions dotted about in the grass.

“Louis of Cadbury Lane is a pony who lives alone in a field full of dandelions and other weeds near us at the end of a track in rural Wiltshire which my son named when he was about 5.

Louis is always there – I don’t remember a time when he had been taken out for a ride or a walk, so he attracts a lot of attention and kindness from dog walkers and passers by like us, who want to make a fuss of him and feed him apples and polos.

He has captured many people’s hearts, and I was inspired to paint him.”

This piece and associated kindness story is from Rosemary Burn go and check out their other work and support small, independent artists.
