Here is a horse, from a Janet Cordell roughout. Janet doesn’t have completed go-bys or photos; she kinda wants you to carve your own using what she teaches you about forms and anatomy. Which is good, since I was actually carving something else in her class and just listened to bits and pieces as she taught others to carve this horse! I loved the design and have managed to complete it after doing a little research. It stands about 10 inches tall and the title is from a Willie Nelson song. Thanks for looking!

Very nicely done—a tribute to the song, which is one of my favorites.
