BDR Southpaw by oxpecker BDR Southpaw by oxpecker
Name: BDR Southpaw
Barn name: "Pawpaw"
Age: 5 y/o (2 in this image)
Height: 14.1hh
Colour: Dapple grey (on black base), will fade to solid white by 15 years (E/e, a/a, G/g)
Discipline: Broodmare - may try in western pleasure, halter & liberty
Personality: Purchased as an unnamed 2 y/o filly from Pakistan. A classic desert mare of strong Arabian heritage. Best described as ladylike; quiet, graceful, gentle and patient. She’s quite petite and currently lacks the fitness for strenuous eventing, but is a wonderful broodmare with strong maternal instincts. She also makes a fine mount for young students. Her only fault is an obstinate suspicion of rain, puddles and other bodies of water – a trait no doubt inherited from her Arabian ancestors.

Passable Traits: Curly ears will be lost unless bred with another Marwari or Kathiawari. 50% of foals will inherit a grey coat.

I'm so glad to finally get this done, it's been sitting on my desk for weeks. Dark dapple grey is probably one of my favorite horse colours, so it's unfortunate that she won't stay this shade forever. I also realized that while painting dapples is easy enough, getting them to stay there is a whole different endeavor! Anyway, I hope you like this one. Constructive critique and suggestions are always welcome.

I would sell this original if anyone was interested.
About 14x11" - Acrylic wash, gouache, watercolour and pen.
