Peter Max Helps Horses

Artist Peter Max paints to raise awareness for New York City carriage horses.

VegNews cover artist Peter Max painted a portrait of a carriage horse to raise awareness for the New York City horses’ plight. The portrait was of Bobby II Freedom, an ex-carriage horse who was almost sent to a slaughterhouse before being rescued by Equine Advocates, a horse sanctuary. The portrait sold in an auction for $12,000, with all proceeds donated to Henry Street Settlement and Equine Advocates. “It is going to take tremendous cultural education and evolution to change,” Max said to the Humane Society of the United States. “We need to stimulate people’s minds that animals are just like us.”
