Ralph, That is a delightful Rocking Alpaca…....any child would love it. Quite amazing that even though there are no physical details painted on, the outline and stance of an Alpaca is so clear and breathes life into it. You could almost imagine it would scamper off by itself. A kid would think they are really riding an Alpaca.

Great Project!!!!!
