Assembly

This being a 550 piece puzzle and very few colors, I did not do my usual sorting routine.

I laid out all the pieces onto the foam board and started to build some clumps of pieces.

Assembling the reddish-blue-black was first. Then I started with each individual horse...

  1. White horse
  2. Silver horse
  3. Full size brown horse
  4. Top lighter brown horse
  5. Dark brown and white horse

As you can see in my work-in-progress image above there were some remnant pieces that needed filling in.

The shaped pieces were quite helpful with this shaped puzzle. I did not attempt to do the border at all as I knew it would eventually fall into place. The following images clearly show the shaped pieces and good quality of the image and the puzzle.


Here is the actual image on Barbara Gibson's Creative Commons website.  

There are many other images of her Wild Horses artwork among some other really  beautiful artwork by this Artist! It's worth taking a quick look.

When I spotted this puzzle for $1.00 at the Thrift Store I was hesitant because the box was open and the pieces were not in a bag - not a good sign. But I love horses and shaped puzzles so I thought I would give it a go based on 'hope' that I would once again win the 'Thrift-Store-jigsaw-puzzle-lottery' and I was thrilled and amazed at my luck!!!!

This Bits and Pieces jigsaw puzzle titled Horse Show is still available on Amazon
