Magnus the Shetland Pony is incredibly pleased to be taking up temporary residence at Forbes of Kingennie Country Resort in Angus, Scotland.

Magnus is on display between the Fishing Tackle Shop and the Luxury Self Catering Lodges. 

Magnus will be on display for the next few weeks so please come along to meet him and perhaps enjoy a game of golf or even just a lovely meal and drinks in the restaurant.

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!
