Moore Art

I was asked last week what seems to be my most successful way of advertising. I thought for a few seconds and replied “ Word of mouth. “ I have tried Facebook ads, sponsorships, WITH banners, at a horse show, and Instagram. Among a few others that include my being present with my work at events. YOUR suggestions to friends, YOUR shares on your pages and just being my friends has been the most successful way for my art getting sold. And I thank you.🌷
To help me get some more traffic during this slow time of art sales and discussion, may I ask a favor.

Can you you ‘like’ my page ‘Moore Art’.
Go to the ‘community’ button at the top part of the page. ( you will need to move that top line to the left. 👈 )
Tap that ‘community’ button. 👆
That blue ‘invite friends’ button... tap on that.
Then you will see ‘invite all’. Yep, a tiny tap on that button will send an invitation to all of your friends.
They can very easily either decline the invite, or check out my page and accept the invite.
It’s easy, it takes literally just seconds to do, and it will help me get a chance to share my work with more folks. And you know I appreciate all your help!

Thank you all SO much!!!

News from Canada...look at this little Dude. Isn't he special. 😱 6 months old.😳. Stood there for his grooming! Way to go Westminster HA (by Widmark o/o EM Havannah L by His Highness/Rubinstein. )

EM Havannah L by His Highness/Rubinstein has made the successful transition from broodmare to riding horse under only the direction of her senior citizen owner, an amateur who has not been riding for decades. Now that tells you something about these bloodlines. Hug those His Highness offspring sitting in your barn!❤

Retired broodmares, now riding horses, EM Halleluja and EM Havannah (both by His Highness) had chiropractor visit today. Both doing fine with their new jobs. ❤❤

Who would expect to see these in the yard in Michigan on December 28th?😱

Merry Christmas from our family to yours!

Memories of previous Christmas cards from 2016 and 2017. The herd is quite reduced since then. Love seeing the memories! I think a collage of all will be in our future Christmas decorations.

And then there were three riding horses! EM Havannah L now back in her riding slippers and doing just fine even with Senior Citizen on board.

News from Ranessa (2019 Revolution o/o EM Halleluja by His Highness). Here she is with her "star" raising buddy (Qredit filly). They sure look happy 🥰

Westminster HA "West" has his fancy name plate too. And Christmas decorations! He is doing well in Canada..even jumping!

Well this happened last night. 😱 I can now say I currently have in my barn two beautiful black mares that I OWN, BRED and have RIDDEN. It was only walk and trot but a huge confidence builder for this senior citizen who has not been riding much. Hanoverian Premium Eligible Mare Fabulja HA is 4 and Elite Mare Halleluja HA, recently weaned, now a retired broodmare is 14.


This sweet 97-year-old had only one wish left on her bucket list - to ride a horse one last time ❤️

Westminster HA by Widmark out of EM Havannah L by His Highness is the last foal to leave Hidden Acres. The good boy only stopped a second to look and then followed his "Dad" right in. He is on his way to Montreal to be raised as a top hunter. Good luck West. All the noise from the barn was your horse family neighing their good byes to you. 😥😫

We did it 😱! "EM Halleluja HA, owned, bred AND ridden by Cheryl Johnson"...has a nice ring to it. 😁

Another year, different horses but same process occurring. EM Halleluja stands wherever you put her. EM Havannah needed mounting block to remind her to "don't move so I can take your picture".🤣

We are on week two. They got past staying in barn while herd went out, standing on cross tie, dealing with boots on all four legs, bridles and today we added saddles before we lunged. Floats were done right after weaning. Hallie recouped her weight already, Havannah still needs more weight. Shoes coming soon! Senior citizen may jump on them tomorrow for a walk or so. 😱

No worries if Ranessa is in good hands. Look at the stall she arrived at and even her own fancy name plate already 😱❤

Royal Ranessa HA (Revolution o/o EM Halleluja) has left our farm and now is at her new home. She walked right into the empty trailer (with a step up, no ramp) that she has never experienced before. Reportedly accepting of her new digs. So happy for them all and most importantly this special filly is in the hands of some very special people! ❤
