The Circus – The Horse

20130703-073154.jpg

I have been making a horse to join the circus. Initially it was white but I was asked to make it skewbald. What’s that I wondered. I looked it up on the Internet and thought ahhh cow markings. I was not totally convinced I had done it correctly so I turned to the all knowledgable twitter. I then spent the evening learning about the difference between skew and pie bald thanks to Maggie and Alice Arnold.

The Circus – The Tent

Here is the start of the circus tent. Due to my lack of space and a very inquisitive Bea I have roped in the parents to help. My father is making the frame and my mother is sorting out the fabric. It’s looking good so far.
