This horse is very special to me. His racing name is Flamingo Kid. He was one of the horses I’ve been blessed to work with and I loved him so very much. We were best mates. To my total heartbreak, his owners sent him to China to race where I felt that he would do no good…..and…he didn’t do well at all. For my boss he was winning races in Sydney and doing very well.

He’s been gone a couple of years and I still miss him. Painting his face made me remember all the wonderful times we had together. In this photo he was out in a paddock and when he saw me he came walking up the hill to get his regular cuddle. He wouldn’t let any other horse near me and would chase them away. He was so beautiful and such a great friend to me. I decided to share the love I have for this horse in this painting and placed myself next to him.

My inspiration for this painting is obvious but the reason I am sharing it with my collectors is because I know those who buy my work love horses as much as I do and deserve a painting filled with great love and genuine emotion and connection.

    What a gaze; I feel his head is going to come out of the picture frame; was thinking so even before reading the description and now I know this was from a time he was coming up to you; and it is obvious you guys had a beautiful bond – they are children to you aren’t they. Beautiful work Tahnja; there is nothing like a friendship between a human and an animal…

  • You know my heart so well Mui-Ling….I treasure you so much for your ability to “read” my work. The bond I have with horses is so deep and comes from a time when they were all I had in the whole world. Being orphaned at a young age and losing my sister and brother all by the time I was 16yrs old had a seriously traumatic affect on me. Then being badly abused didn’t help either. Horse were the only kind of love I knew and without them my soul would have died and my body along with it.
    I still have that bond with them and they know that I love them. So many people comment on how the horses behave around me, even my boss who is often stunned at the loving bond I have with the horse and the way they totally trust me. I know them better than anyone around me. I know there moods and emotions and can always tell before anyone else when something is wrong. They are my best friends even more so than my children. They held me together when my world was darker than the pit of hell. Even now it brings tears to my eyes how much I love them and remember how I had nothing but God gave me horses to help me. God never left me abandoned and it’s my honour to give Him my life in return.
    Love you Mui-Ling…thank you…with all my heart for understanding me so well. You’re a wonderful friend!
