Beautiful Pat. I can’t wait to see the draft horses. My uncle raises Belgiums, if thats the spelling. My Gramp had one left from his farming days I remember,as a kid, an old blind Percheon. But your Mustangs sure are full of life. Love the textures. Check out Dick Cains draft horse, absolutely beautiful. Mike

thanks mike, and i did check out his draft horse. i love it. so beautiful.

i have to finish this commission dog portait before i can do the horses. but my uncle farmed allhis life and never had a tractor, used draft horses . i remember the mules my dad used when i was little. thoght they were really big. till i came across a photo a while back. lol. my dad was only 5’2 in tall. and those mules were no where near as big as i thought. lol.
