Hippolyte by Hippopottermiss Hippolyte by Hippopottermiss
Hyppolyte is a very important fairy'po. He sits discreetly outside in the palace garden to light the way of the young hippo couples who sneak away from the hippo ball to walk together by the river.

Hand modelled in white clay, the fired and glazed at 1050°C/1000°C

Sold!

Merci :)
Je vois que tu as essayé d'en faire aussi - et que tu l'as pas trouvé très facile :giggle: Je ne sais pas si c'est l'anorexie ou simplement que sa bouche n'est pas assez large pour manger des tonnes d'herbe. Courage ! Ça peux venir avec un peu de patience, du temps et de bonnes photos pour les proportions :hug:

:laughing: how's your bum these days anyway? :lmao:
:hmm: do you suppose that your sharp crack on the ground could have anything to do with the troubles with your eye? I don't know why I just thought of that :confused: ...but, I do know that a sudden jolt can cause a detached retina and other such eye ailments :omg:

The bum has a strange lumpy bit that's still a bit sensitive and uncomfortable from time to time :( The nerves grew back and it's no longer numb :) Physical shocks can cause retinas to detach. I thought about it and asked the doc but there was too long in between for it to have been linked.

:hmm: I know :nod: ...but, delayed reaction, perhaps? when added to some other strain? just one of the straws on the proverbial camel's back?
Glad you've gotten back the feeling in your bum... too bad about the strange lumpy bit... but :idea: maybe it's there to serve as a physical reminder that you don't get on unknown horses :lmao: (just trying to laugh with you :hug:) Your injury was certainly NO laughing matter at the time! :ohmygod:

Well I still managed to thoroughly enjoy my time in KC despite the handicap - so it must've been fun! :laughing:

Hey :D I've got an update. From time to time my bum starts prickling & hurting a bit and is sensitive for a few days. The outcome always seems to be an improvement - as though it has been rearranging badly stuck back togather bits. Well after a week of activity it is now still a bit sensitive but softer and less lumpy looking. Woo hoo! maybe one day it'll be back to normal after all :giggle:
