OK. Yeah, very cool and all, but . . .



Kelpies are dogs.

This from Wikipedia...

Quote:
Kelpie, or water kelpie, is the Scots name given to a shape-shifting water spirit inhabiting the lochs and pools of Scotland. It has usually been described as appearing as a horse, but is able to adopt human form.
Presently using an iPad which doesn't lend itself to posting links.
Apologies for that.

Hold on there Lady.
The Scottish Kelpies were around 1000 years before we westerners found Australia, and about 1275 years before the first Aussie Kelpie dog.

When I was in the Brownies, I kind of wanted to be a Kelpie -they seemed the "fun" six. But I was a Ghillie Dhu.

High horse

Nic Fiddian-Green, the equestrian sculptor, puts the finishing touches to Serenity, an 18ft copper head, at his studio in Surrey.
It is one of pair of his horses’ heads to be displayed at the Venice Biennale art fair next month.
They will be transported by barge along the city’s Grand Canal on April 27.
