Thank you all. I really enjoy doing projects like this where I can be a little creative. It’s these type projects that keep me going. Without them, I’d do nothing but sit at home on the computer, sinking into a pit of depression. Yes, because of my back, I suffer while doing the harder work on these, like the standing up and adding details. When finished though, when I stand back and see what I’ve done, it makes it well worth it.

There is another idea I may do sometimes in the future. The instructions for this project are for a display type piece. It is only to look at. Someone sitting on it with all their weight would surely break it. I think with a metal pole though I could make the rocking version that could actually be ridden.

It is absolutely beautiful, William! I am also partial to the natural colors of the wood. You did a wonderful mix of natural colors. It is truly outstanding and I enjoyed watching every step of the process. I am happy you did one for yourself this time. :)

It looks like you decided not to do more to this piece, it looks awesome as it stands! This is my favorite of your horses.

Thanks you all. I did decide not to put nearly as much flowery detail on this one as I have in the past. I think it was the right choice. Some times less is more. I’ve got to do as SuperD told me and start being aware of that “sixth sense”. I often do projects and plan things out before I ever start, and then stick strictly to that plan. I carried that plan though on this one, but at the point you see it now (minus finish), I stepped back and reevaluated the “plan”. I need to start doing that.
Another thing I find helps my projects sometimes is that every once in a while, I’ll build something with no plan. I’ll go with a good known platform, like the carousel horse, then just start detailing. I feel it’s about time to do that again (not the carousel horse again, I’m just thinking as I type). When I do this “fly by the seat of my pants” planning style, I feel it really turns out some of my best work.
Thank ya’ll for your compliments. It does mean a lot to me.
