Sheena was one of the three geriatric horses that came with the farm. Barbie Gal with the white blaze and white socks; Sheena with the sway back as painted against the afternoon sky; and Royal Barb, the mother of Barbie Gal. The kids and I would brush them and spoil them with extra sweet grain. My only problem was that they were hard on the fencing. Sometimes we boarded others horses as long as they fit into the group of three. They were entertaining to watch like big outside cats.
The thin forest on the King-Caledon Town Line in the lower right was a favourite subject of mine. Caledon was developed while King Township still preserved the agricultural land. The smallest lot size was 25 acres which was too large for the developers to make a lot of money back then. The remains of the once expansive deciduous forest were on the King side of the Township line.
I really like this little painting. Sometimes the paint just flows.
