Pony sketches

Sketch week: Day 3. A couple of sketches today to celebrate the Chinese Year of the Horse

This black and white pony grazes in a field down the lane. It is the same field that had the lost gloves on the posts. There is only one glove now and I think possibly the other one is inside the pony. It would have been tempting to nibble at the waving fingers.

It is very black and white with a sprinkling of mud too. In the half light of late afternoon it is almost lost in the far hedge.
