This handsome fellow is quite a rare beast he is a Special Extra Carved early Lines horse. These horse are comparable to the Ayres ‘D’ types and comes with added detailed carving on all aspects including a carefully carved tongue. As a tribute to Lines and the Caledonian connection he sports a royal blue saddlecloth with brass Thistle details and pigskin suede seat and pommel. He has been carefully restored over original gesso and paint and the stand, although has had previous work done in that all varnish has been removed and waxed, the original ‘Pat Jan 29th 1880’ stencil is still clearly evident on the base plank.
