Here is Bob's chicken with a good deal more thread applied. I am particularly proud of the dark green highlights in his tail, which are really visible in real life.
I fell off Kaboose on Thursday – mostly I have road rash because I was riding bareback in shorts because it was incredibly hot, and I faceplanted in a sandpile. I got back on then, and have ridden her a couple times since, including today in a clinic. The instructor said "when you ride second level" which was absurdly encouraging. Bob rode Penny, and felt some completely new things and was so exhilarated!
I have to finish some minor details on this rooster, and photograph and mount it, and I can deliver them both to Bob and Leonor over the weekend.
