The Denver area was hit by a huge winter storm yesterday that buried us under a foot and a half of snow.The city doesn't have the manpower or funds to plow small residential streets like mine, and road conditions were bad enough that most people were happy to stay home anyway. Most people--but not my mail carrier! I can't tell you how happy I was to see him come slipping and sliding down the road today.
That's because, once again, I knew he was bringing me something special!
This is Raconteur. He is a Brigitte Eberl Spago resin painted by Sheryl Liesure.
This same sculpture was also used to create the Peter Stone Half Passing Warmblood. That's a model I've always wanted to add to my herd, so this guy is a very welcome addition.
And you know, I actually think I like the resin better. He seems a bit more finished somehow, especially in the hind end!
The snow has finally stopped and the sun is peeping through the clouds. With any luck, the roads will be just fine tomorrow. For now, I'm perfectly content to stay home and admire my new pony!
