Assembly

I did my usual sorting routine.

  1. Sorting to locate all  the outside border pieces, while....
  2. Placing the pieces into the 'general-color' piles. 
  3. Then I carried on with a second round of sorting (similar colors sorted by shades/patterns) while placing the pieces flat out on the poster boards. 

The border was a little tricky since some of the pieces were the same color and blurry.

I started with the whites and greys to use as much of those as possible. Then I defined the difference between the horse pieces and the brown tree/leaves. That was the easiest part. The horse went together the easiest and fastest.

I worked as much bright orange/Fall colors as possible and was left with the dark browns and blurry areas along the bottom.

Comments

The photographer, Bob Langrish lives in the UK and has a pretty impressive career. The following is quotes from his website: CLICK HERE 

"Equestrian photographer Bob Langrish has accumulated 400,000 images over the last 37 years, illustrating every aspect of the horse and its world. Bob's horse photos frequently appear in calendars, books, magazines, greetings cards, stationery, puzzles, posters, diaries and other publications all over the world. His photography covers all major sporting events such as the Olympics, Aachen, Badminton, Burghley, Calgary, Euro Championships, Gatcombe, Hickstead, West Palm Beach and the World Equestrian Games."

The company, Lafayette Puzzle Factory, produces a series of Enchanted Horses with 6 in total.

Unlike the larger number of pieces-puzzles produced by this company (the pieces are much thinner and flimsy) the pieces are totally acceptable for use with children and/or Seniors, which I would say this one is more for Seniors.

The above jigsaw puzzle(s) have been added to my Puzzle Hobby Tracker 

I am in the process of recording all my past jigsaw puzzles that I still have for my walls and all my current puzzles.

Then I have the TO DO list that I am adding from my collection.
