The original horse bodies were made using mop handles which were thin wall metal tubing. In a very short time they had bent the tubing by placing it between 2 chairs. Even 2 year olds can be very inventive. Because of their destructive testing abilities I replaced the tubing with 1” dia. maple dowels. This should keep them busy for quite a while.

Good swap, Jim. Those dowels will take it!! The tubing was probably pretty thin wall!!
