Rocky Ridge, Maryland - April 24, 2014: Metro Meteor the painting racehorse frolics in one of the pastures at Motter's Station Stables in Rocky Ridge, Maryland April 24, 2014. Metro Meteor was once one of the fastest turf racing horses, but an injury ended his career, and almost his life. Ron and his wife Wendy rescued Metro Meteor. As a way to expend the horse's boundless energy, Ron let him paint. Half of the sales from the paintings help pay for Metro's vet bills. The other half helps his fellow former athletes via the New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program -- of which $60,000 has been donated.
