Our NEW Heavy Horse!
Isn't he just such a lovely handsome chunky monkey! Tania has done an absolutely fantastic job on him and he has turned out exactly as I had hoped
This is obviously the original sculpture and I still have to get him cast into plaster moulds which might take a little while longer and then the decision as to whether to add feathers and get him re-cast or whether to make each feathered one a bespoke model but I couldn't wait any longer to introduce him!
I just want to thank everyone again for donating to the raffle and buying the tickets that we had at our show last year as this was a huge help in making this possible

That's so nice. Looks like I'm already adding Suffolk, Percheron and some kind of roan European draught type to my wants list now (it looks like it will make an awesome Shire type too with feathering but I prefer the heavies with less feather myself).
He's gorgeous, what a lovely addition to Julip! I love how he's simultaneously nice and realistic and incredibly well sculpted but also very obviously a characterful Julippy shape too, if that makes sense
Just a quick update on the heavy horse as it's been a while.
I'm still currently waiting to get him cast, the sculpture is still a bit soft and slightly difficult to handle without damaging it. So I'm waiting for it to harden up a bit more before I take it to be cast, just in case it gets it's ear or legs get knocked, although this hot weather isn't helping at all!
