Work Horses in Winter

These pen and ink drawings are part of a series of draft horses working in the winter.

Eventually I will work each of them up into paintings.

Sleigh Ride

Most of these sketches are of some of the local draft horses that are not only used for working farmland, they also are exhibited at the fairs in conformation classes, in two, three and four horse hitches, in pulling competitions and in parades.

Two Horse Sleigh

Most of the sketches of black Percheron are of Billy and Ben; the greys are of Glow and Silver.

The drawings of Belgians are of either May and Mandy or Charlie and Sunny. The Clydesdale is Jimmy.

Hay Ride

The pictures shown here are all 4" x 6” original, framed pen and ink drawings and are available framed for $125.00 each.

Now I had better go to KAGS to sit the final day of the Temperatures Rising Show.

Along the Trail

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and look at the artwork.
