We think we save horses but in fact they save us.
THE HERD TRUSTS HER TO TAKE THE LEAD WHEN THEY TRAVEL. SHE SELECTS THE SAFEST ROUTE AND THE BEST PLACES TO GRAZE. AND SHE RESERVES THE RIGHT TO DRINK FIRST.
AND SHE ALONE DETERMINES WHEN THEIR BEHAVIOR HAS CHANGED SUFFICIENTLY TO LET THEM REJOIN.
BRAVERY BEYOND THEIR STRENGTH AND COURAGE WHEN OTHERS RETREAT.
"When someone 'gives' you a right you should have by birth, the very act of 'giving' re-enforces that you're not equal and are now, perhaps, even beholden. Equality is innate and we take it, own it, and live it. No one 'gives' it to us, because inevitably the giver wants to take it back."
Excerpt from "What Two Lesbians Can Teach You About Equality, Money, Power & Sex"
"Women consoled one another in those days with, "Oh, just ignore him," and I did. Ignoring is the same as accepting and it chips away at our self esteem, which then turns into identity loss---forgetting who we are and what we stand for."
Horses are a mirror into our soul. The horse will be as difficult as we are, or as kind as we are, or as angry as we are. We hug her neck to ground us when nothing else can. The horse teaches us about ourselves. We teach the horse nothing she doesn't already know, for she is wisdom on hooves.
We're two women of a certain age who love our country, its women and its horses; and too often don't like the way any of the three are being treated: our country defiled, women marginalized and horses slaughtered. Our art is the way we choose to celebrate women and protest injustice.
We live on a ranch with a herd of horses who occasionally end up on canvas, making their contribution to feminist art. We're also published writers, first in L.A. developing and writing screenplays and later as authors of women's mysteries and romances. So while we've spent decades in the corporate world, we're now committed full time to creating art and literature...a bold announcement but if not now, when?
Writing and painting is what makes us happy and when you find happiness you want to embrace it. We hope our work makes people who come to this site feel they've found a kindred spirit and horse art that moves them.
We're blogging Mondays and Thursdays from our ranch... talking about what horse women talk about...politics, and the weather, and horse care, and tack, and if we should get another horse...
We'd love to stay in touch to inform you of upcoming events, new artwork and interesting blogs. If you're okay with that, scroll down to "Keep Me In The Loop" and enter your email.
