Phil and Buddy the Horse


Me and Buddy the Horse (RIP), photographed by Ed Morton; very sadly poor old Buddy is no longer with us.  He was an amazing animal, beautiful, powerful and anatomically huge, his head is the size of my body.  After meeting him for five minutes he seemed to connect really with me at the time this picture was taken.  Coincidentally, my name Philip a Greek derivative, means 'Fond of Horses'.

Phil Richardson and Buddy

To be honest I am fond of all animals really and humanise them as much as possible, so this picture is both special and sad for me.  It is a shame to think this wonderful creature is no longer around.
