Z's Diary October 18, 2011
So much is going on these days in Lexington. I have such a busy schedule. It is my understanding that I even have a ‘CALENDAR’ that Dottie coordinates with Sarah each week to be sure I am where I need to be and when at the farm each day. I am having so much fun! This SECOND CAREER aspect of my life is rather exciting!
Needless to say, it is absolutely necessary for them to schedule in times for ‘HAIR, MANE AND HOOF’ care. As you know, I truly want to LOOK MY BEST!
Nicholas Karem is one of the photographers who was at Lane’s End last week shooting photos of ME. He is working with LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE. They are currently doing a piece involving ME right now. He really tried to get some very ‘unique’ shots. I sure hope I LOOK FABULOUS! He said I DID!
This reminded ME of the time Robert Maxwell came out to BARN 55 to get ‘just the right photo of ME’ for W MAGAZINE! He spent an hour on the ground rolling around on my grass snapping shots, stood on ladders of various sizes for another hour, and even had his assistant hold SOPHIE as a prop for ME to track with MY eyes. All of this was done with the goal of getting just the RIGHT photo! I saw the one they used in their piece…it was very special! LUCKY ME!
Some other very special things are also happening right now. As many of you may have read, MY JOHN was busy last week spending some time on a project that involved ME. When he was here on Friday, he did whisper a tid-bit in my ear. He is so excited! On Thursday, he went to Louisville to see the ‘in-progress’ LIFE SIZE PAINTING of ME that is currently being completed by artist, Jamie Corum. They have been in touch while the project was unfolding….but Jamie wanted John to review the final details in person with her and add anything more specific that would make the painting PERFECT!
From all reports, when he walked into the room and looked at the painting, I heard MY JOHN was ‘speechless’! After all of the years we spent together, he is the one person who truly knows every single inch of my body better than anyone else. He had one word to share with The Moss’ and Dottie after seeing Jaime’s work….”MAGNIFICENT”! Per John, “I did not have much more to add…Jamie captured ZENYATTA perfectly!”
This painting will be unveiled at MY PARTY! I can’t wait to share it with all of YOU!
Here’s wishing you a wonderful day!
Hugs to All~
