Joan’s Lirico

Here is Joan’s Lirico, “Gaudi”. He was named for the famed Spanish architect best known for his excessively detailed Sagrada Familia, and there have been times when I wondered if, like Gaudi’s cathedral, he might never be finished!

Unfortunately it was nearly impossible to capture the detail in his pale coat. It’s too subtle, and easier to see if you are holding him and can turn him to minimize the glare on the glaze. But here is an attempt:

I am going to be sad to see him go, but I learned a lot about effective roaning techniques from him so he’ll be influencing horses here for a while to come.

    Thank you both for such nice compliments. And any day a gal can blow away her mentor is good one in my book. 🙂
