Horse Portrait from Photo

Well I've had some feedback about Ollie's portrait and it is good news, it seems Ollie's owner was very pleased with her surprise birthday gift so that's a great relief!!! I'm currently hoping to have a page with my pet portraits displayed on a popular dog website so hopefully it will prove popular for both myself and the dog website, fingers crossed, it's still in the very early stages so far but it sounds quite promising plus I'm trying to figure out how I want my background to look on the tiger portrait for the pet portrait competition but I cannot seem to get it quite right, I know what I want but cannot get it down on paper, plus I have a few commissions building up to get on with now so I'm a bit of a busy bee at the moment, my day job does get in the way a bit you know!!! Talking of the day job I passed my assessment for brushcutting, clearing saws and strimming, I sound professional now (it's not true at all) so I should be able to do a good job - who are they kidding!!! And most importantly of all, I saved one of my warren chickens from certain death yesterday, I heard a commotion in the garden so ran outside to find a buzzard about 3 foot from the back door and I am not exaggerating in anyway, sat on a chicken trying to rips it's wings apart, I grabbed the chicken just as the buzzard took off, I would not believe they were so big without seeing one with it's wings out, and how cheeky was it!!! My chicken had a fuss and is now in chicken hospital until her wing gets better, although I'm not sure if she'll ever flap her right wing properly again. Oh what fun country life is!!!

Hi Just Plain Karie!!
I'm sure glad I found your blog! When we first moved to the country, we had some real interesting experiences that I'll share sometime. Those Turkey Buzzards are UGLY. I think you may have a mentally challanged one on your hands, because, aren't they supossed to wait till something is dead before they start knawing on it?!?
I see you all over the Net - thats great. I wanted to tell you what a nice blog you have. I'm kinda - no thats not right - I'm really new at it so I'm still trying to figure it out. I linked to you from my blog that I started recently. I hope I did it in such a way that it will do you some good
