Now I may not have grown up on a farm but I have had my share of chasing animals! . "The Great Barnyard Escape" was inspired from a call many years ago when I was working patrol. A number of cattle and horses had escaped from the fairgrounds pens during the Rodeo. Several animals crossed the highway and were in a field where Economart now sits. I was running in my full gear like I was really going to be able to catch a horse,talk about being in way over my head! It all turned out well and no animals were hurt thanks to a few extra cowhands who helped out:) So this painting is for all of you who have ever had a similar experience!
