What a great little rocking horse! Do you mind me asking where you got the plans for this horse?

My oldest was also a puddle pirate.
Thank you for your service!

Nicely done.
I like the two rocker crossmembers—they’re not what is typically seen.

Thanks again everyone for the compliments. It’s been fun making these for friends and family. I got the plans from saw some at craft show so thought I would give it a shot!! Not metal used. All dowels and wood glue.

A nice horse!

I have made 60+ rocking horses and every one was different and also fun to do.

Are there any of your own modifications to the pattern?
