Just came across this on the news app on iPhone and thought how lovely it was. So to sum up the rest of the story, Metro had an injury while he was a racehorse and Ron and his wife bought him for the wife to ride but realised his knees had more health problems. So Ron taught him to paint. They sell his paintings to fund his treatment and so far his treatment has added years to his life. They also donate half of the money raised to a charity called new vocations that rehabilitate and re homes ex racehorses.
I thought this was a really lovely story, better than all the negative rubbish usually in the news, so thought I'd share it with you all
