This pony reminds me of Ireland…they have lots of beautiful, shaggy ponies…It inspired me to write a poem, which I haven’t done in a long time, but I’ve been longing for the place lately…
O beautiful misty land of my dreams
I want to unfurl you agains my skin and breathe in your scent like a lover
I want to tangle my hands in the manes of your shaggy ponies 
and ride through your hills of heather
I long to dive from your cliffs and dance like a child
to the music of my ancestors.
This has to be the pony I dreamed of when I was a little girl. All messy mane and liquid eyes, multicoloured and fluffy…I fell in love with him all over again when I saw the photo, and I had to ask permission to paint him. The great reference photo was from Rapscallion…which would actually be a great name for this little guy…He looks like a rapscallion 🙂
