Considering I painted this piece way back in October, this post is a little late off the mark, but here it is anyway…

This painting depicts a 16.1 Dark Bay Dutch Warmblood (or ‘quite big dark brown horse’ to those of us who are equinely challenged) and was a (slightly belated) present for the horse’s previous owner, Cat. Unfortunately the lovely horse, Unique, had to be sold, so the painting was intended to be a sort of commemorative piece. A pretty horse, I’m sure you’ll agree!

A Cheeky Double Act

Here is a sickeningly adorable photograph of two shetland ponies just chilling out. I like the sort of nonchalant ’emo’ pose of our friend on the right, and if we follow his gaze we come across the comical presence of the young slack-jawed critter to the left. The hopelessly romantic 9 year-old part of me hopes that they are the best of friends.
