Sharon! I never cease to be more in awe each time I see another one of your graceful masterpieces of these majestic animals. Congratulations!

I am sooooo jealous...and broke! Otherwise I'd buy all three and maybe win a ribbon or two! :-) Huge congrats on the red, gorgeous horses. *sigh*

Beautiful!
Do you have ( or willing to share) a setup of this? These horses seem so mild mannered, you'll have no trouble selling them!
