14 x 18 inches, oil on canvas, 1986 return to Fur and Feather
Five Star, so named after a favourite pint of ale in the owners local pub in Alton, The Bull's Head Inn. The image depicts the colt at about 18 months, and not yet gelded. He became a successful steeple chaser and hunter some years later. He is shown in the environment in which he was raised, with the 19th Century Paladian bridge over the River Churnet and Alton Castle rising above the cliffs in the background.
