Fifteen-year-old gelding Bobby II Freedom, a New York carriage horse was days from death in PA, before Equine Advocates brought him to sanctuary. Peter Max volunteered to paint a portrait of the horse and Peter's portrait of “Bobby II Freedom” is featured in the film "Saving America’s Horses: A Nation Betrayed". When news came that the film was scheduled to open in NYC, Peter and Mary Max graciously offered their art studio to host the reception in celebration of the event. In effort to raise more support, Peter generously created a brand new portrait of Bobby II Freedom to auction off at the reception for the film.
