What does a classically-trained orchestral french horn player have in common with a Métis visual artist?

In the case of Ken MacDonald and Rhonda Snow, both are caretakers of Ojibwe Horses, Canada’s only Indigenous-developed horse breed. Ken and Rhonda combine their music and painting to share the stories and knowledge about the “Small Horses of the Big Woods”.
