I love frame 2. But fame 4 still annoys me and I think it always will. I give up on frame 4. It's serviceable, and that's just going to have to be good enough.

And these kids are not at all concerned about why there is some random horse standing in a swamp. Really good parenting on their parents part.

I am so glad I came across this comic. It's so fascinating.

I've always thought Kelpies were supposed to take the form of a black horse, so seeing it with a white body - the colour of purity - is a definitely nice thing. And such a sad expression, too... I am definitely enjoying it.

There's a dozen different versions of the water-horse myth, so this is far from diffinitive. Kinda just a mash up of whatever worked best for the story.

thank you :)
