    That's looking brilliant Kev, now just the dapple on the horse...:)

    Did they leave the head of the leopard attached? It looks like it would get in the way of the pack (sorry, forgot the name) that they would carry behind the saddle.

    Hi Kev
    The leopard coat looks good.
    What colour are you going to paint the horse's mane, just wondering as he's to be a dappled grey and the several variations you can choose from?
