Something that is very odd has happened with Comanche my PMU since I listened to that podcast. Comanche’s willingness is increasing. He lifts his feet off the ground for me to pick up. Before, he would shift himself to take the weight off that leg, and cock his rear legs so I could pick them up. But now, he actually lifts them a little off the ground for me. Almost like he is handing them to me. I have asked several people about this. Do you think my mere knowledge of what happened to him could make that change, or do you think it just a coincidence?
This coming week he is going to be my model during a “Meet the Artist” event that I am doing for the local CC. This will be Comanche’s début event. It should be fun.
I also wanted to update you on the herd that was the subject of my “Among the Mustangs” series. The BLM has rounded about 200 of them up and they are in holding pens. I am trying to find some one that is in the Salt Lake City area that can help keep track of their status. It has been heart breaking to work on these paintings knowing they are no longer free.
