Collecting Horse for Stourhead

I helped Paul Boswell and Rachel Macleay collect their Horse from Horseworld near Bristol to take to Stourhead, the National Trust property in Wiltshire, where it will be in the Scraptors' Sculpture Trail Beyond the Garden Gate throughout September. The horsebox was decorated by Paul for a neighbour. Paul has wielded his brush on murals for clients in Shanghai and Helsinki as well as nearer places such as Bristol and London. You can see Rachel holding the Horse in place on the lifting gear.
