Minimus

When we were at the Whalton Show last weekend a lady I'd met at a show in Rothbury earlier in the summer (yes we have had one) who took a shine to Minimus came over to say hello.  She had a rather exciting gift for us.

Irene Hilson is a fantastic artist and she has painted the most magnificent picture of Minimus from a photo she'd taken at the show.  He'd recently been shorn, had his head collar on and was rather damp.  I'm sure you will agree she has done a superb job and this will take pride of place in our new house when (!!) it is built.
I'm sure you will agree the likeness is fantastic, this is a photo I took of him about the same sort of time.
Hopefully we will soon be stocking some of these prints.
