And I always thought the rocking horse my husband made was the nicest ever. I’m glad I don’t have to judge because I could have some difficulty showing my family loyalty! The walnut and maple are just exquisite. Thanks for posting.

Thanks for the kind words folks. L/W your husbands rocking horse is great, I like the sculptured head and legs. Mary Anne, the mane and tail is macrame brushed out, that takes some time.

Thanks for the info on the mane and tail, Dale. It looks great; one of the most realistic I’ve seen. I’m going to have to find a kid to befriend so I have an excuse to make a rocking horse. I sure put a lot of miles on mine when I was a little girl. I’ll bet this one will take Sarah on many fabulous adventures.
