Equine Art Website

Good morning! I came upon this equine site and thought I would pass it on. Of course, many of you are probably already aware of it. Beautiful realistic, impressionistic and abstract equine art from this group based in the UK:

Sketchbook Project by Nancy Standlee

I am teaching an art journaling workshop and have ordered this journal and it will be digitized with the student's entries.. thought it might be a fun project in addition to our regular work and I have painted on the first page and the paper worked ok.. pretty thin but it took a watercolor light wash.
I will post the entry on my blog sometime this morning

I am thinking to renew my collection of brushes and I had ordered catalog from Rosemery&Co. The diversity of brushes give me a dilemma which one to choose. For example, they have a good collection of Nylon brushes, then bristles, or combination Nylon plus Hog Bristle etc. Mainly I work with acrylics and that narrow my choices, but regardless of that I still have a lot to decide.
I would love to hear from you which one is your favorite brushes?
What sizes do you use?
Do you prefer rounds or flats or some special effects brushes?
