So I painted this not so long ago, and I’ve been really nervous to actually post it on here - but I honestly am really proud with the outcome of this? And I just really wanted to share it - I know for a fact I suck at hair, but how about we just ignore that (and his rings hahaha.) Anyway, I painted this and I hope everyone likes it!
I might post more of my artwork later if you all like this.
I don’t have to pretend to have a horse, because it is a horse. Like the Fjord it’s an old breed (the Fjord is an ancestor actually), and they were horses before “tall” horses even were a thing. Their strong build and bone-structure are another reason why it’s fair to call them horses, for they can easily carry adults. Just like a Fjord horse. And there’s the simple naming factor: if I look in any horse encyclopedia I’ll find both the Fjord and the Icelandic with a ‘horse’ behind the name. Same with Wikipedia. Not pony. Horse. So excuse me if I call them by their breed name, Icelandic horse, and sorry that I and many others with me do consider them horses. There’s nothing about them that makes them lesser compared to taller breeds.
Grigor on Dani Vallverdu after winning his World Tour Finals title: “He honestly didn’t say that much which was pretty funny. He was actually the first one to walk off the court and I was like ‘where is he? I want to grab a picture with him and the trophy’ but he was already in the locker room and just happy – me and him have a great connection. We see tennis the same way, we have that bond a lot and we really appreciate how the year has gone for us.”
