Making a poll for this one...

So please vote & help me decide while it's early enough to make the sexually dimorphic traits true to the gender..

Do you find this pose BELIEVABLE for a mare's behavior? Playing/striking like this...



I know (from torn fencing) ;) that they do strike a good deal and high like this when meeting up or when in heat (teased out etc). Also that they certainly have no hesitation in rearing either (just like the boys) ... I just have to wonder what collector's views on this are... I kinda like the feminine squealy/giddy type playful attitude better from a sassy girl perspective rather than just another Arab stallion being fiesty/hormonal. I mean it sorta seemed expected at first when I started that it should be an Arab stallion .. but they are soooo common in sculpture and a petite mare being really animated would be a lot more fun for me I think...

???

Feel free to share thoughts too (morgen AT one-horse.net) or comment here.

Let's see if I can get that poll running now...
(edit - got it! Plus well I should add here that I've only spent about 12hrs so far playing with this work... it's really still just an "expression".. truthfully I barely measured anything and I'm cringing to see what the #s tell me when I'm ready to face the music there. For now, it's just fun to play and say "what can this be?". Call it creative therapy. ) :)

Considering there are way too many stallions as it is, please, please, please make this a mare.
