2015 Indian Artbeat Foal Photo #1: Miss Piccadilly

Received this note and photo from Lyndsey. Check back tomorrow for another photo of this beautiful filly.

Hi Marie,
 
Very dark brown/almost black filly that I named Piccadilly (Reg Named Most likely: My ArtPrize). She is full out spunky, cute, but I can truly say that she is exactly what I had dreamed up in my mind. So now I can say I have my “dream” horse. My mom and I are already working with her daily to get her used to things and I can’t help but notice her flowing movement. I attached some pictures of her so you can see Miss Piccadilly.
 
Thanks again for your help in the breeding process and I hope to keep you updated on her in the coming year.
 
Lyndsey D
