Hercules lives right down the road from me, more or less, at the U of M‘s College of Veterinary Medicine. About a month ago, Herc helped raise funds for the U’s new Equine Center in unique fashion — by creating hoofprint paintings as gifts to the (human) donors (of money).
The imposing palomino isn’t limited to prints, though–he’s been receiving instruction on his brush technique. This is a university, after all.
Here’s what I’d like to see, though: For your next fundraiser, tack a plain canvas dropcloth to the wall, line up a couple of paintbuckets in front of it on a sawhors… um, some kind of support… then have Hercules give ‘em each a nice solid kick. Et voila: Jackson Paddock.
