Failbhe, looks like you and Eowyn had a lovely time! She looks super relaxed and I love the running braid
Well, plans to go down and ride Brock failed, I was too sick to get out of bed til about 15 minutes ago (4pm). Really annoying as I have a lady looking at him next weekend and I wanted to get a feel of how he's going to behave so I don't make a total fool of myself in front of her
I've decided, so I have something to remember Brock by when I sell/lease him, I'm going to make a model horse exactly like him (fat, fugliness and all!). I've done lots of modelmaking in the past, and lots of 2d horse art, but haven't made a model horse before so it'll be fun. I thought about repainting a Breyer horse but none of them look anything like him, and it's more effort and more expensive to do major customisation than it is to build one from scratch. It probably won't be as big as a typical Breyer because the wire armature might struggle to remain upright under the weight of the polymer clay (all that fat!!), so I'll probably be looking at a 1:16 ratio model (4" at withers). I could make a wooden stand, maybe with "grass" and "gravel" surface, and a little brass engraved nameplate.
My friend is thinking about selling Star too, so if my modelmaking is successful and she does sell, I'll make her one of Star so she can always have her (especially as she may be moving back overseas and won't have any opportunity to visit).
