Robbie The Clydesdale

By kaybee  
Along with Kevin the blacksmith and a couple of his 'boys' who made him.

The is named after Robert Burns because of what is inside him... you are going to love this
When Kevin came across a 'hole' in a hedge one day, he looked in and saw a bird on its nest - completely hidden from normal view.
This got his imagination going whenever he saw a small hole in anything wondering what might be hiding in there; a bird, a spider, a mouse

Once he started building Robbie he realised that the inside of the structure was like the hedge with branches and twigs criss-crossing and intertwined, so he started making a bird on its nest and hid it inside -- then the mouse he had thought about and that made him think about Robert Burns and his 'Ode To A Mouse' so he made a notebook and pen and welded that inside too.

So if you ever see Robbie .. go up and spend some time having a really close look through the wee holes and gaps and try and find the small 'extras'.
Unfortunately, I just couldn't get a picture of any of them.

If you have deep pockets, Robbie is for sale but you will have to pay dearly to cover the 10 months of hard work the team put in
