This week Amy gave us the Lens-artists Challenge “At Home”. I don’t have my horse at my home and with the lockdown continuing I am still not able to ride. But as I walked through my home I realized there are many horses. Here are two greys painted by Mabel Hollams. When I am very old and move into an elders’ home, this painting is the one thing that I will insist on taking with me.
Next is a photo of my daughter, taken in 2006,with her horse Espar (Teddy to his friends) . She was on the Canadian Junior Dressage Team for the North American Youth Championships and they won the Team Silver Medal. That is the FEI medal there in the photo. I have it for safe keeping!
There are other “horses” in my home. Here are two ; one is glass and the other pink jade.
Here there are horses, in a detail from an oil painting, that came to me from my Grandmother.
Also inherited from my Grandmother is an old book that has the crest of someone called Gilbert Heathcote. I know nothing about him but if he had two horses on his crest he must have been an fairly decent fellow.
Thank you Amy for this challenge. I had fun going around my home with my camera looking for horses.
