05/08: WAY TO GO

 Apologies if you tried to follow the link earlier via your Dashboard .... I've had computer problems with Firefox crashing on me throughout the day.   This is third time lucky (I think its the 'Christine' curse if you saw my Blog post dated 27 July)!


I've always said that I want my final journey to made in style like this - but I really want a practice run first so I can wave to people en route :o)


WAY TO GO

Aren't they magnificent?

and talking of black horses .... I've added more fine detail to  Bertie and 'lost' the rein which was bothering me a little.  Thanks for your input here - I think we all agreed it should go :o)  

I've emailed this photo to Bertie's mum for her comments.  If she's happy, I'll add the final whiskers around his muzzle and call him finished.  No more horses in the pipeline unfortunately ...

if I planed on having a funeral I would love to have a horse pulled hearse (then again I'd be dead so what would i know :p). the horses look so regal with the tack and plumes :)

Well I'm not planning on going just yet :o) but what a send-off eh??

and the good news is that Bertie's Mum loves the portrait - so I'll finish that over the weekend and send it off to her.

Oh, Sue! Bertie ended up looking as magnificent as the horses from the video you posted! No wonder his mom is pleased! Loosing the rein was a great choice.

Thank you Jan .... I'm just adding the finishing touches (whiskers etc) and Bertie will be in the post to his mum on Monday.

Now, another human next ...
