Metro Meteor - And You Thought a Horse Couldn't Paint

NBC's Award Winning Animal Advocate Jill Rappaport will be partnering with world famous painting racehorse Metro Meteor to help raise awareness for retired racehorses!
Halters and saddlepads featuring Metro's artwork will be available thru Jill's Rescued Me Collection later this year on! A portion of the proceeds will be generously donated to New Vocations to help us continue with our mission of rehabilitating, retraining and rehoming retired racehorses! Stay tuned for more info to come!  You can buy pillows, totes and pictures, painted by Metro here.

In order to channel his boundless energy, despite being prematurely retired due to a crippling leg condition, owner, Ron Krajewski,  taught him how to hold and use a paintbrush. The rest, as they say, is history...

Metro’s bold free style strokes create a palette of exquisite fanciful swirls and layers of texured color and has the desired effect of “washing the dust of daily life off our souls’.  It's obvious that Metro can't mix his own colors, but what he achieves with a paintbrush (in his mouth) is both exceptional and sublime.

We are 'believers' and thus proud to present the Painted by Metro Eco-decor collection  of decorative pillows, wall decor and fashion totes- with  many more things to come!

In addition, we're excited to be associated with New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program through our contributions from the sale of Metro Metero's products.  New Vocations is one of my favorite charities.  They take race horses and retool them for new careers.
