Metro The Painting Racehorse
** OGTV's final GOOD STORY of the week is about a thoroughbred racehorse who was rescued after a knee injury and has since taken up a new occupation - painting! **
Many animals are very smart. Like the dog who opens doors, or a monkey who can play chess... But one very special horse has captivated our attention for his unbelievable talent.
After retiring from being a racehorse, Metro seemed to be nearing the end of his life. Born with a knee a problem that was the cause of his career's end, he could have been put to sleep. Luckily, Ron Krajewski, an artist from Gettysburg, PA, and his wife, Wendy, adopted him.
They quickly fell in love! They knew Metro had a knee condition but didn't realize how bad. It got to a point where Metro couldn't even walk the trails anymore. A vet told them his condition was terminal, but the horse and his owners didn't take that news lying down. They were going to see to it that Metro continued to fulfill his destiny. After all, he is a very special horse!
Ron noticed that Metro liked to bob his head up and down. Naturally, the artist in him had an idea. He put a paint brush in Metro's mouth and beautiful things started happening. Metro was a natural painter! His big, colorful brush strokes would lead him to become a best-selling artist in Gallery 30 in Gettysburg.
The money his paintings earned even saved his life! His paintings' earnings helped him get access to an experimental procedure done which reversed the bone growth in Metro's knee. Now a new horse, he donates the rest of his earnings to New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program, which helps retired thoroughbreds find homes and get new careers.
This painting horse not only captivated our attention but also our hearts!
