Very happy that Magnus was able to make a quick visit to the Brae Riding School last Saturday where he met Boris, the friendly Shetland Pony.
Boris was a little hesitant when he first met Magnus and preferred to keep his distance but with a little encouragement from the wonderful volunteers at the Riding School he was soon standing face to face with his heavy metal relative.
Boris initially didn't want to get too close to Magnus. Shetland Ponies are incredibly strong so our only hope was bribing him with custard creams!
After a custard cream Boris and I became best buds and he even obliged me with a selfie.

Stuart, the third of my metal Highland Cows made from reclaimed vehicle parts has been sold to an art lover in East Ayrshire. Its always hard parting with a sculpture you have made but it is much easier when you know that it will be appreciated and enjoyed by its new owner.
After months of hard work it was great to finally reveal Magnus, the Shetland Pony at the wonderful Botanic Gardens in Dundee. Those who attended the evening event were able to see Magnus and some of my other creations whilst enjoying some wine and nibbles. Big thanks to all those who came along on the night and to everyone who donated metal to the cause!
My first highland cow has found his forever home! Fergus was my first artwork to go on public display and the first to be offered for sale. It's a huge thrill to know that he will be much loved and appreciated for years to come.
Thrilled to announce that Fergus, the Highland Cow is now on display and availiable for sale in the Canvas Art Gallery in Forfar, Scotland. You can see Fergus in the metal by visiting the gallery or check out their website by clicking the link below
*This post is now out of date - Fergus was moved to the Atholl Gallery and has since been sold.
