I’d been hanging out with Rex Peterson near Nashville, while he trains a whole string of Secretariats for the upcoming Disney movie. The head wrangler, Rusty Hendrickson is a big gruff mountain man from Montana, and a veteran of many films including Seabiscuit. He showed up with this cute buckskin named Top, to play Secretariat’s lead pony. Top was learning how to bow.
Rusty now has this painting, which is 11 x 15″, oil pencil and conte.
