Colt Creations

One of the museums in my town had an art fund raiser auction with painted colts. They asked for businesses to donate $2,000 to purchase pure white horses or $2,500 to donate painted horses. The colts would be painted by an artist or a group of artists in the design that the donor wanted. The places that made donations could keep the colts in front of their places of business until the time of the action. The action was where they would sale the horses to the highest bidder to make the money they needed.

I thought it was such a great idea for both the museum and the businesses that helped. The museum would get the money it needed and the businesses would get free advertisement. People around town,like me, liked to go to all the places and see the horses. People were brought to the businesses by the horses.

I decided to take pictures of all of them. There was a grand total of thirty horses around our town. My family, friends and I had a blast driving and walking to the different places to see them. The colts not only helped where they needed too,but they brought families together and gave people something to do to get out into the community.

I took so many pictures of the horses because they were all so beautiful. I have picked my favorite of each colt and made them into a collage.
Here is the list of all their names going from left to right.

I also have the list of the artists who painted each horse. Leave me a comment or question, I will give you any information I have about these gorgeous horses. I think these horses are beautiful and should be shown to the world.
