Art and Equine Anatomy

May 2016

Talented equine artist Yvette Frahn has combined two of her unique interests in a new series. Using brilliant colours, romantic style and impeccable attention to detail, she explains the inner and outer workings of the horse through her artistic work.  While you may not consider yourself to be an artist in any stretch of the word, Yvette will inspire and intrigue you to understand more about the anatomy of the horse in a beautiful and incredibly visual format. You may find yourself picking up a pencil or brush, and applying this new knowledge to your own artistic pursuits.

May 2016

Storm "Storm is a 16-year-old bay 15hh Standardbred gelding who had raced until the age of eight. In October 2013, we entered our first show.

He was imported to Australia as a two-year-old where, sadly, he didn’t set the track alight with his ability and eventually retired.
