Meant to post these a fortnight ago! I eventually got to see the war horse statue in all its glory, in the Memorial Park (the foundations of which were constructed from material shipped from the remount depot).



And a lovely review of Lessons for Idle Tongues at The Way She Reads.

"From the moment I started this book I couldn’t get over how charming – and I mean that in the best possible sense of the word - Lessons for Idle Tongues is."

That looks like a very kind and approachable horse statue. I suppose there must have been horses that came back, as men did, kind and wise and sad.

Yes. The famous one is Warrior, who inspired the War Horse book, I believe.

I love the flowers at the horse's feet. Did you leave them there?

No. I didn't even notice them! Maybe they were from local children or something?

What a marvelous statue - the perfect size to be enjoyed and touched. Love that.

Yes, that's grand, isn't it? I just hope some clown doesn't go and spoil it.

He's spot on. Very real, if that makes sense.
