This is really lovely.

How lovely is this - a stunner Gudrun

What a delight Gudrun. Horses are not easy things to get right. You have done so brilliantly .

So well drawn, the attentive mum, and the foal trying to work out what his legs are for.

What a delight Gudrun.

I love the horse’s head Gudrun, shows a loving mother to the foal.

It shows the fragility of new life and new motherhood beautifully Gudrun.

Great Sketch Gudrun

Really sweet, what a composition

A wonderful drawing Gudrun!

Thank you Bobbie. I am pleased I have managed to portray this as that is what drew me to this image.

I only just spotted this on the banner Gudrun. How lovely it is, with the little foals wobbly legs and mothers tender nudge, gorgeous drawing.

Archival, pencil on 20x20cm paper. As always a nightmare to photograph. This is a 'new mum'.
