Snow Horse by LindseyTaylor Snow Horse by LindseyTaylor
this is my snow horse which melted yesterday Monday March 3, cause it got dramatically warm outside. the snow was a bit too packy which turned really hard once I packed it together which made it really hard to shave so I used a snow shovel to shape as well as a mini hand held garden rake. It took me 3 - 3 1/2 hours to make him he turned out to be an Arabian ... go figure eh! i didnt even plan that it just happened. Anyways I make a snow sculpture every year cept for last year cause we never had packy snow at a time when i was available to build one. I worked mostly from my head although 2 times I got stumped so I looked at a photograph of a foal to get back on track. It has snowed quite a bit this year and I'm hoping for another packy snow day so I can make another which i am yet to decide what to make.

I miss him :(

EDIT: wow DD thank you ever so much I am ecstatic really.

Oh my gosh!! THIS IS BEST AUTHENTIC SNOW SCULPTURE I'VE EVER SEEN!!! My brother and I made a small (really, really small) fort thing this last year by putting the powdery snow we had on top of a table and some boards. Then we put a towel in it and forced or Pomeranian to get in. Needless to say, she didn't like it much. I also made a snowman.... But it was covered in dead grass and dog poop from the back yard...:yuck:

I keep expecting it to jump up and run around in the snow! Really realistic, and the details on the face especially look amazing.
