After a successful career as a racehorse, and before ending up as a pot of glue, Metro the horse decided to start a career as a painter.
His new owners, who really did not want to send him to the knackers yard, observed Metro whilst trotting around the pasture observing local painters in van Gogh sunhats doing what they do best, painting.
He would gallop over to the fence and poke his head over. Then a painter realised Metro was actually watching him and giving comments through horsey language. The painter told Metro's owners and they engaged a local "horse whisperer" to translate what he was saying and the painter was not amused:
"That's a load of crap!" Was just one comment the Whisperer managed to translate and the artist replied,
"If you think it's crap then do it better!"
"OK, arsehole, no problem," was Metro's answer.
So his owner purchased some horsey paint brushes, XXL, canvas and paints and the rest is history. Soon Metro will be exhibiting at the Tate in London and Sotheby's are being inundated with requests from global, animal painting lovers. The last animal to cause such an art sensation was an Orangutan nicknamed, Andy (not Damian), who now lives in a million buck mansion in Bali.
It's better than ending up in a pot of glue I suppose!
