The Story of Prairie Bayou

Oil on Gallery Profile Canvas

I was the editor of a horse racing magazine years ago, and one of the stories we published was about a race horse named Prairie Bayou. Prairie Bayou was famous more for his demise on the racetrack than for his amazing racing career.

With all of the media coverage and speculation, I often wondered if anyone loved him for something other than his ability to make money for his owners. This is the home I've made for him in my mind, a peaceful place to rest with plenty of delicious plants to nibble. I haven't forgotten you, Prairie Bayou.
