This the second rocking pony I’ve made, the first was for our one year old granddaughter. This one is for our church’s silent auction this fall.
The body is cherry and the rest is hard maple.
All I need now is to come up with a minimum bid for it, I’m thinking $100. Any thoughts?
Thanks for looking

after looking at the pics, I’d say $100 is a good starting figure, nice job

Great looking Pony Jerry, and I’m sure they will bid much more than $100 for it.

That’s a very nice pony, Jerry, and the kids will love it.

$100 sound cheap for a starting point to me. That is a VERY nice pony.

Thanks for the comments and bid help. I’m thinking if no one meets the $100, I’ll take it home and save it for the next grand child, when ever it comes.

You are donating this? You are a very generous man!

I made one similar to this a couple of years ago for a nephew and I know how much work went into this project. And THIS is a very nice pony. I was asked by friends of his parents what i thought it was worth and I told them I wouldn’t sell it for less than $250. I assume you know the patrons of your church and I hope the bidding is fast and furious.

Well done sir.

Well done. I agree with UncleStumpy this is a very generous gift. If someone takes this home for $100 they are getting an amazing deal. You have made an heirloom for some lucky child. Good luck with the auction.
