Dab hand: Mayor Len Brown puts the finishing touches to his fibreglass horse Pegasus. Photo: JASON OXENHAM By MELISSA KINEALY and HANNAH SPYKSMA Pegasus a winner for Kidz First Horsing around with mayor Len Brown is something Manurewa youngster Luke Brooks takes in his stride. Luke and friends got busy with their paint- brushes to help Mr Brown decorate a life- sized fibreglass horse Pegasus for an auction to raise funds for Kidz First. The five-year-old goes to Manurewa Central Primary School and is part of Kidz First Com- munity Health. Luke really enjoyed meeting the mayor at their painting session at Ponsonby s Artstation. He high-fived me and signed my painting. And getting up on the horse was just really cool. Pegasus and 17 other fibreglass horses painted by celebrities will be auctioned for charities of their choice at the end of Auckland Cup week. South Auckland Health Foundation executive director Pam Tregonning is thrilled Mr Brown s chosen to benefit Kidz First. The project s a great way to raise money for a cardiac ultrasound to help babies and young children with heart problems, she says. The machinery costs $200,000 but all parties are optimistic about the artistic value of Pegasus. We ll get that off our first bid, jokes Mr Brown. The 18 fibreglass horses have been designed and decorated as part of the Resene Fastest Art Exhibition. They ll be let loose in the city in early March before returning to Ellerslie Racecourse for the charity auction.
