Each pendant is a print of an original painting done by the artist, the original having been painted either in oil, acrylic, or encaustic (painting with molten beeswax.)

  • Each pendant is 1.5"x2"
  • Silver plated pewter
  • Chain is 18" long
  • Pre-orders are welcome!

To order a pendant, contact Sonja at: and she will handle all details. Currently payment will be by check to Sonja (artist Janet's daughter) since she helps the rescuers and will make the donations.

The intention behind making and selling these pendants is to do something to save horses. The artists are paying for the materials and taking none of the proceeds except for the $10 per horse pendant for Andrea.

We have been so disturbed over the plight of horses in today's world that we decided we had to do something to help. We believe in Edward Everett Hale's quote, "I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do."

Janet is a Portland oil and encaustic painter, usually painting the figure from live models, and also landscapes. More of her work can be seen at

Andrea is an award winning Portland artist who paints animal and human portraits, as well as landscapes and still life. She paints with watercolor, acrylic, and pen and ink.

*These artists on this Horse Defenders site have agreed to handle all transactions themselves with a large portion of the sales going to save horses from slaughter.
