Mare and Colt

It's not uncommon to see life-like sculptures of cows, horses, and bulls in other Canadian cities such as Toronto (thanks Redpat).
This is the type of work Joe Fafard is famous for.
I didn't know this piece existed before I stumbled upon it by chance on Thursday.

Looks great and I looked at the work of the artist on your link. No conceptual art for him but pieces of real craftmanship in the style of the old masters. Must be quite a relief not to explain the whole time what you have made . Thanks for showing.
