"BELLA MOON" - Another Victorian Style Rocking Horse!

In between my boot works, I received a commission for this Victorian style rocking horse. My client ordered this for his wife and grandchildren in honour of a horse that his wife had owned some years back. The face gives away it’s name and now the children ride off into the sunset! The Rockies not too far away!
Patterns and supplies I got from the ROCKING HORSE SHOP Ltd. in Fangfoss, YORK, England. Website; www.rockinghorse.co.uk

Enjoy!

Roman, the Bootman, sometimes horseman!
