This is my entry in the Horses contest. Hand drawn my me digitally. I hope you enjoy my design, and I thank you for stopping by! :o)
A few years back, my old boyfriend and I went to the Los Angeles County Fair in Pomona. We were admiring the beautiful Budweiser Clydesdale horses when I wandered into the stables and saw one of the most beautiful and massive creatures I have ever seen ~ a Belgian Draft Horse! It had a grayish-brown and soft white speckled coat (I'm sure there is a name for this type of coat, but I have no idea what it is!). I could barely move, I was so in awe of this horse! I wanted so badly to reach out and touch him (hence, me in the drawing reaching out to touch). I felt so tiny next to him! My boyfriend finally had to pull me away, as I could not stop staring at this lovely animal. That horse definitely made an impression on me!
I also remember feeling sad that such a breath-taking animal was in a stable and not out free to roam and graze on our flatlands, or free in it's homeland Belgium! Alas....in any case, what a beauty that I will never forget!

Aw, thank you so much, hakuai, I love your artwork too....I've been following your work...love!!!!
Hmm, I thought I added this as a favorite a while back, but I guess I did not. Good thing it came up in my fabric-you-might-like feed--I remember this from the contest and thought it was soooo cute <3
Thank you so much, Su. It means so much that you came by to take a look, thank you!
