Equine Art Exhibits Straight From A Horse's Mouth

A horse who paints with his mouth is to have his work exhibited at the Venetian art gallery, Galleria Giudecca 795.

The 23 year-old-horse named Cholla uses his mouth to hold a brush and paints on an easel-mounted canvas in his paddock.

Cholla's paintings have sold for more than £2,000 and one of his paintings was even acquired by the American celebrity, Martha Stewart.

Implications - Cholla’s owner Renne Chambers says that she discovered the horse's talent four years ago when he would follow her around as she painted his enclosure. She said that he seemed to be extremely interested in what she was doing, so her husband made the suggestion to give the horse a paint brush.
