Down the Ridge Line - How to make a leg float

 Today, put a clay post under the front left horse's hove. This will act as support for the horse once the bronze is cast. The trick is to do this and make it look like you didn't do this. The shadow of the hove will hide the post. Bronze is very soft. If it's only supported on two legs, then it will bend over time in bronze. By having three legs touching the base it is more stable.
