"Dobbin" 8x10 oil on board

Dobbin lives just up the road from us in a very large Equestrian Centre. He just loves carrots and noses his mate out of the way to get as many as possible.
When John was taking a photo of the farm Dobbin poked his head over the fence and frightened John by nosing him on the back of the head!
Friendly beast.
I enjoyed this painting, lots of happy memories, plus I couldn't believe all the colours in what is basically a black horse, colour from the early morning sun and the white snow.


  1. This really is a great painting. Horses are so difficult to paint but you have captured this one perfectly.

  2. This is a great painting mom (perfect)
