Ah Henry, my little mutt cob horse, how I love thee! ๐Ÿ˜€ Even if you aren’t technically a realistic color, I can’t bring myself to strip down and ‘fix’ such a handsome fella.

His body coat roaning is in pastels, the points, corn spots and sabino markings are all in acrylics. He does have realistic eyes, but I they are a smidge too dark to show up in the photos. He even has little tiny silver horseshoes painted on, because I was having fun with the new magnifying lense.

At some point I probably will send him back under under the brush to make him a little less of an ‘artistic licence’ rebel, but for now he’s just hanging out with the Home Herd and making me smile. ๐Ÿ™‚

Medium: Acrylics and Pastels
