Love it, Bert.

Colorful and dramatic.

Just wonder if the horse's front legs need to be better defined. The pink spot is confusing me on its left leg and the rectangular block on the ride leg looks like the leg ends there.

Beautiful painting Bert, excellent detailing.  O0    :clap: :clap: :clap:

I may not be 100% on this Mea, but I think the pink you are referring to is a wrap used to help protect/stabilize the fetlock joint. Haven't had much interaction with horses since my teen years, but pretty sure that is what is depicted here.

Thanks, Val.  I know nothing about horses, so what you say about the pink now makes sense.

Regardless, Bert did such a great job on this.

I love horses and used to hang out around Windfield farms. I still remember like it was yesterday, seeing The Dancer (Northern Dancer) in one of the paddocks.  :cloud9:
