Synergy comes from the Greek word synergia, meaning joint work and cooperative action among two or more forces that creates an enhanced combined effect.

HORSE CREATED ART

Greetings ~ Bienvenue ~ Pjila'si ~ Fáilte

These unique pieces of art and paintings were created by the horses and usually, Michelle, in a synergistic partnership. Sometimes, backgrounds are painted in by human hands and then the horses use non-toxic paint to add colourful flair. They can use many parts of their bodies, including their dexterous lips and muzzle. They also get lots of treats, rubs and praises during the painting process.

The act and purpose of creation IS the art. It is not simply the finished product of paint on canvas but the process of making it. Working together, two or more beings make something together that will benefit others in their community, along with enriching their own lives in the process of creating the art as it teaches them patience and mutual respect. It is synergy. What a fun, unique, conversation piece to have. They also make excellent gifts for horse lovers.

* Art may contain horse saliva, horse hair, grass, hay, farm dust and nibble dents, after all, they were made by horses.

Fundraising is always a challenge here at Synergy Equine Assisted Wellness Center. Synergy offers community outreach services and there are always other running costs, feed, emergency vet bills etc...

Limited availability, you may have to get on a waiting list for a custom painting. See what art is available below.   Photo colour may vary slightly from actual paintings due to photo quality.

Meet the horses:

Fortune's Lil Wishbone: Wishbone is an Arappaloosa, an Arabian/Appaloosa cross bred. Wishbone is an odd fellow. Wishbone was born in 1997 and has several health concerns. He can be moody and has Equine Anorexia. He also has Equine Pulmonary Disease.

In late spring 2014, Wishbone was seriously injured in a freak accident. The weeks that followed challenged him greatly, he was asked to take liquefied mush every couple hours from Michelle's hands or let her place it in his mouth, he had broken his jaw and could not drink or eat on his own, he did this for a week until he could eat, slowly, small amounts of the slurry from a bowl by himself. He was asked to have his wounds scrubbed out daily and re wrapped, he did this over and over again and never kicked. Slowly, he is now recovering well from a broken jaw, leg injuries and various wounds. He is now retired. His very existence encourages visitors at the Center to overcome their own life challenges.

 R.I.P- Wishbone passed away in December 2014.

Huybers Utopia Mister Sullivan: Little Bear is a miniature horse. He is solid black but the sun sometimes turns him reddish/brown on the tips of his hair. He has come to be known as Little Bear as he looks just like a black bear cub when he is off playing in the bushes. He is an escape artist and enjoys romping through the bushes rather than staying put in the field. He was born in 2011 and was quite small. He also had a slow heart beat, the rate of a large draft horse. He came to live with Michelle and be an assistive horse. He is Wishbone's mini bro. Having him around makes Wishbone want to eat. Little Bear has grown, a lot, and his vitals are now normal for his breed.
