Looking a bit tired, June 2015.
I decided to completely renew the gesso except for the belly. It might have been OK to patch the last gesso but it is hard to ensure
the patch edges would stand up to constant riding. So here he is, back to wood again. Better safe than sorry.
All in good order except for a few cracks which had opened up. Filled again!
Sanding down the many coats of new gesso to give a smooth surface for painting. A very dusty job, best done outside in nice weather.
New paint - darker dapples and a paler body - it's fun to try different colours. Maybe next time will be something else.
All ready to ride again.
