Thank you tinyliny for the compliment.
Given the horse is part of a memorial sculpture ( which in isolation can be a sad thing )I wanted the first impression of children who viewed the sculpture to be posative and happy. I made an effort so the horse would not look scary or dangerous which might come to mind as parents explain the reason for this sculpture to thier children. Jaffa (the sculpture horse ) is happy and non threatening. It will be at a height that children can touch , which I think is critical for them to enjoy this work.There is too much sadness in the world for me to add to it.
Thank you again for your interest.
