Better conformation then some of the horses I've see here.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Absolutely stunning, the images showcasing your talent have significantly brightened my morning. It's the subtle details in sculpture that distinguish a talented artist from a gifted artist, and you've definitely got those down.

You will most certainly succeed in inspiring young riders through your dedication to the young lady.

Thank you Tinyliny. This horse was started early June this year. I work on it on average 10 days a month. Much of the inbetween time is spent scrounging scrap and solving the multitude of engineering problems that surface. I do have a fulltime job as a road construction worker . Because of this I can attack the sculpture fresh each weekend having solved most of the problems in the back of my head whilst gainfully employed building roads . Getting the parts is becoming a major drama. It has taken me many years to accumulate key parts. Sadly many are no longer obtainable at a reasonable price. My next horse will have to be+ 50% more expensive as I will have to buy many parts new and age them.
