Warm socks

As temps continue to hover around zero, and piling up the negative wind chills, it's time to show another Napoleanic cavalry figure.

The 'socks' on this horse were a reminder that I had to wear up to three pairs at a time to keep from freezing last year.

The nasty cold is here until at least Saturday...


  1. Ouch.. white legs.. its undoubtedly result of degradation of horse stocks that Napoleons heavy cavalry suffered in the campaigns..
    Those dark and heavy horses from Normandie were unfortunately very hard to get in numbers..
