White Horse Pacified rides again

Well listeners. This is a bit exciting and no mistake. This week I got a message via the blog from a lady called Julie Livsey – the creator of ‘White Horse Pacified’ – part of the West Swindon Sculpture trail.



She said: “It was a lovely surprise to see the image of my sculpture The White Horse Pacified in your article about the Swindon Sculpture Trail. It was constructed in 1987 when I was Artist in Residence for Thamesdown CC. The poet Carol Ann Duffy was Poet in Residence the same year. If you would like any further information about how and why the sculpture was commissioned I would be very happy to answer your questions. 
With best wishes
Julie Livsey”

Wasn’t that lovely? She’s also very kindly scanned and sent across the leaflet about the sculpture so hopefully you can see it all okay. So here it is – straight from the horse’s mouth as it were…
