Love this, makes me smile and remember we saw a trained buffalo at the State Fair in New Mexico years ago. Could do all sorts of tricks.
 
Nice Jim.

I have a friend who does children's book illustrations and has a collection of over a hundred little plastic models of animals in different poses to work from.

Sigh. I only have 4 but they are fun to draw.
 
Good drawing Joe! :)

I had loads of toy animals when I was small. I regret telling my parents that they could throw them out because I realise now they would be useful for drawing!

Didn’t have a lot of toy animals as a kid. Had a collection of green plastic army men. 😎 Animals I have now I bought as an adult. (2 horses, a buffalo and a long horn)
 
That makes me want to send you some toys!

I had some toys, but I usually used regular household items (like boxes) and my army men with my imagination. You probably did a lot of that too.

Yup. All kinds of boxes and throw pillows from the couch made great hills. 😇
