Before I started university, I used to ride a great gentle mare named Touch. She was an Irish Sport Horse (a cross between an Irish Draught and a Thoroughbred or Warmblood breed).
I found an ad on MH$P which listed 2 copies of Branston. I immediately contacted Eva (the sculptor) if they were still available. Unfortunately she said they were both sold, but she graciously offered me another copy. It was a ‘second’ because he had a broken leg and very many pin holes, but I was absolutely delighted I could purchase him!
I will repair my copy and customize it into a ‘her’ 🙂 And then I’ll paint her as a portrait of Touch.
I don’t think I’ll have her ready for the show the 19th, but who knows 🙂
