This is so good, John, that I can smell horse and almost feel his lovely velvet muzzle. A real beauty.

Yep, it's very nice portrait of the horse.

I'm reminded of a Don McLean song entitled: "The More You Pay". It's about a boy who buys a horse who was going to be sent to slaughter and how he loved and enjoyed her for the rest of her life. The last lines of the song always make me tear up for reasons I've never been able to understand.
And where was the boy
Who rode on her back
With his arms holding tight 'round her mane?
How tightly he clung
When they both were young.
And Fate
Had not let this poor girl
Be so disgraced.

Beautiful rendering. Like the way you depicted he shie on hs coat and mane! Wishing there was just a little mor highlight in his eye...not too much, just a little. I think it would give him even more life.
