 As always you do the most detailed work. You find ways of using all parts to create a master piece every time you touch T.D.

 .er.. Clancy's Reply was quite an eye-opener too, mum. Gorgeous pic, tho --but I am soooooo impressed with your "real" work that I suspect (even hope!) these are now mere preliminary sketches. ;>

 Wow - thanks everyone! What a lovely surprise to come home and find all this! Lizzi - I was going more for kelpie (we have one), but if I got canine, I'm happy!

 Q, I knew that the inquisitive minds here would find Clancy's reply on that page... I love it as much as the original poem. This pic's after "Droving into the Light" by Hans Heysen...
