Many horses were on the auction block in Dixon, Illinois this week, but there was one that really turned some heads.
Justin is a 9-year-old stallion from Indiana, who can paint. He showed off his painting skills at Dixon’s Fine Arts Center on Sunday, September 23rd. His unique talent came as a surprise to his owner, who originally bought him to be a show horse. However, after seeing Justin draw in the sand, she put a paint brush in his mouth.
“I could tell he had a nice body of work and that I could show people,” says Owner, Adonna Combs. “And then when I did say – ‘Hey, look what Justin and I are doing!’ – and people would come up and they would say – ‘Who Justin?’ I said, ‘Well, he’s my horse!”
