Taking shape - Britains most threatened breed of horse to be immortalised in bronze.
A beautiful stallion of Britain's rarest breed of horse is being immortalised in sculpture to honour their tremendous sacrifice as the war horses of the Great War.
Sculptor Amy Goodman studied Icarus, a Cleveland Bay stallion, bred at the Cholderton Stud in Wiltshire to create the spectacular 10ft tall statue of the muscular horse rearing up.
Described as 'Critically Endagered' by the RBST, Cholderton is the oldest stud still breeding these beautiful horses in Britain.
She has used scaffolding poles, welded steel and mesh wire to make the shape of the rearing horse before covering the frame in 700kg of clay.
