This is a Blue Brabant, the breed was originally used as a Belgian working horse.
I created this work during the heavy rains and floods we experienced over the past week and it’s dedicated to the people and animals who suffered during the dreadful storms and flooding.
A quarter of the way through working on this the heavy storms hit and while watching the news I watched people desperately trying to save a horse swept away by the floods.
A heartbreaking sight as I remembered taking my horse down the beach and the thrill of riding bareback in the ocean and how we both loved it so much.
