Just to let everyone know, very exciting news, amazing sculptor Charles Buchanan is sculpting Brigadier. Hoping to be able raise funds so that we can have a life size bronze done and possibly find a home for it at Police Headquarters or Mounted Headquarters, not sure. It would be so amazing to have such a beautiful and permanent tribute to him.

Hello honourable people,

As a sculptor, with a police background, my creations are of people and things equestrian, so I have taken it upon myself to sculpt/model a statuette of deceased Toronto Mounted Police horse, Brigadier. With permission I am using reference photographs by Toronto photographer Anne de Haas, who has been associated with the TMP unit for some years. Brigadier is being modelled in a classical pose, as photographically captured by Anne on the shore of Lake Ontario, the pose being similar to George F. Watts' colossal statue, 'Physical Energy' and Leonardo da Vinci's 'horse'.

I would like to keep you all updated on my progress as I ultimately believe that in his memory, the work should be cast in bronze for permanent display.



Yours sincerely

Charles Buchanan

I am a California raised cowgirl. While looking for a pony for my nephews, I came across a website that I was deeply touched by. I am so sorry for your loss of Brigadier and even more so for the perpetrator who all but walked away from his crime. Thank you for keeping Brigadier's memory alive and for supporting reform for law enforcement animals. They are not simply equipment, they are our partners.
