    This is really stunning Maria, it reminds me of how “Harry made a bareback rider on a horse” on the Dire Straits track “In the Gallery”. It’s fabulous :-)

  • thanks Constance for bringin up that song!

    Lovely image – very fresh and light-hearted! (reminds me of my grey gelding also)

  • thankyou patricia, marlin belonged to someone else, he was a lovely old boy, but wasnt looked after, we fed him with our horses till he finally died, this is a tribute to him.
