Race Horse



I think I've been to two horse races in my entire life, both at Vernon Downs. I bet a few dollars and lost. One of the best horse races I ever saw was at the end of the movie Black Stallion with Mickey Rooney and Kelly Reno. Very dramatic. A must see.

the horse or the jockey? the jockey, right? i agree.
that horse has got a lot of teeth!

Thanks Dan. And yeah John, he does have a pretty long grill, doesn't he? And they look more human than actual horse. Partly an unconscious decision I think... I was trying to emphasize the feeling of determination and strain with his mouth shape.

Great to see you are still blogging! Fun stuff! I also like Obama, Hillary and McCain-esp. McCain. Weird lookin' guy.

Seabiscuit. See Seabiscuit. Very inspirational. Greg went to the Race Tracks once, got lucky and won $740!

Hey Kim, Yep. I'm still blogging. I did see Sea Buscuit. Decent enough movie, but the race scenes don't stand out in my mind like they do from The Black Stallion. May need to see again to refresh my memory.
