ReRun, Inc., a Thoroughbred retraining and adoption charity, is holding this year’s spring auction of Moneighs® from May 26 to June 2, 2013 on ebay®. A Moneigh is a 20x16 abstract painting created by a horse using muzzle, whiskers, hoof, tail or paintbrush. The trademarked name is derived from the name of a French artist, and the sound made by a horse. ReRun has completed over 1000 paintings since 2001.
The theme of this event is “Whinnying Colors by Fan Favorites”. Co- chairmen of the auction are Einstein and Gio Ponti, two artists who always brought excitement to their fans. Their works of art will be offered along with the following artists (some who have won coveted Triple Crown races): Animal Kingdom, Awesome Maria, Better Talk Now, Brass Hat, Cigar, Evening Attire, Ghostzapper, Go For Gin, Groupie Doll, Mucho Macho Man, Rapid Redux, Sarava, Shackleford, and Summer Bird. Two favorite artists from the hunter jumper world will be Carlsson Vom Dach (Olympic Gold Medalist) and Rox Dene (Hunter Jumper of the Century).
Proceeds from the auction provide aftercare for the horses in ReRun’s program. To view or bid on the paintings, go to ebay.com and type MONEIGH as the search word; or go to www.rerun.org and click on the ebay icon.
