And a Horse!

Here is Secretariat wearing a saddle accompanied by a GSD that I made when I first started making dogs in 1997. The dog was made to stay in the barn setting with Seabiscuit another of my favorite horses. I have sold horses before but the race horses are in my own collection. This horse is special to me.. I think his hoofs are very realistic looking. I made  shoes out of metal... I love the dog because he always reminds me of the beginning of making dogs. I made a Toto and Lassie, Rin Tin Tin the RCA Victor dog and Pilot from the Jane Eyre story.  One day I will get the barn I have refinished and both horses can have a place with of course a few dogs. The barn is quite large with many possibilities.  That will be a future project.
