-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

that is really nice!
i have been itching to make one for nearly a year for my 4 yr old kid, he is maybe into cars 90% of the time and occasionally on toy guns I am sure he would love to sit on this awesome horse rocker! but my 1.5 yr abdominal surgery would not let me do things still in the shop…maybe a bit of that and this…i can find my way to finish it before his 5th bday.
would you care to share at least the height of the horse body, and front and hind legs, and also the length of the rockers.
with those measurements, i can find my way to solve the other parts.
thank you sooooooo much! Godbless!
