Some ponies are bigger than others and this one is a baby clydesdale. Also, completely fantastic, so fantastic in fact that we decided it would be a horrible tragedy to cover it entirely with actual horsiness, so we have opted to cover the strauture with the adobe material and not fill it out with straw muscles. Its is a great decision for art but the added work in applying the stucco wire is a big deal. We got about half way through it today. Im still hoping to finish this piece and install it tomorrow but I am also teaching a bit this week. Fantastic for my life but difficult for all that must be done in the studio. You can see here that it also got a thin coat of paint. This was applied to slow the rot of the wood inside the clay.
The Insurance agency also moved a bit in the last couple days. I should have the structure finished inside and out tomorrow or Saturday. Ill post pics then.
