Horse and livestock clay sculpture

Hi all.
Just thought I would share some of my sculpture projects. Critique and suggestions welcome, I have only been sculpting for about 4 months so I have A TON to learn still. So please be gentle

These are a few of my very first attempts:

And a wall-mounted head with a whimsical/not-so-realistic detailed mane:

Thank you for the kind words. I have never considered myself an artist, can't draw worth a darn, have never gotten into painting, I don't have a photographer's eye, so I really am shocked still that this has come naturally to me. Especially since I have monocular vision and don't see in 3D. Who'd a thunk it?!

My first two bust completed. Stained with iron oxide in varying concentrations and mounted on cherry wood slabs. Since the photo was taken, the wood has been finished with Danish Oil. I am calling the horses finished in this manner the "Earth Horse Series"

Some greenware waiting for firing in the electric kiln. We need the thunderstorms to pass so we don't risk a power outage whilst the kiln is firing.
