The Horses

The horses used are from Michael Roberts. These are beautifully sculpted, I just wish there were more poses. Since I ran out of spare Historex pieces, these were the perfect solution. At the MFCA show, I picked up two of the rearing and one charging. With two of the same pose, I knew a little conversion work was ahead. I didn't want to show the horses in full gallop but rather in mid-halt or a slow canter. I repositioned some of the legs using brass pins and filled in the joints with putty.
Some of the gear, saddle and reins, etc. are based on British patterns.
