I made this rocking horse for my niece’s 1st Bday. It is based on the plans from Lowes web site. Made from 3/4 and 1/4 baltic birch. A couple of modifications I made was to add the mane and tail. I used some fringe fabric from the craft store and held it in place on the mane by making an extra wood bracket and pinching the fabric between along with a little hot glue. It was big hit!
