The body of the barding looks a little odd largely because there should be a split between the checky section and the bit with the Marinus arms on the rump which would accommodate a saddle and rider. Since Molly will not have a rider I left this out, so the join sort of looks funny to me. It's not so bad when she's walking around, but I think for the next iteration of barding I will tweak how I place the heraldic elements so the balance is a little better without the dividing line of the rider/saddle. The whole checky section needs to be shorter for one thing. I also need to slightly alter the curve over her rump, it's not laying as neatly as I would like.
Molly will be wearing her fabulous new outfit next weekend at War of the Wings, hopefully I'll be able to get some better pictures of her there. Trying to get a clear shot with my phone while the other two dogs were looking on and trying to sort out what she had one was tricky at best!
