THANKS, DEREK—IT’S ABOUT 10 INCHES TALL-CARVED FROM BASSWOOD,MOUNTED ON WALNUT. ONE OF THE HARDEST PIECES I’VE EVER DONE. HAVE A HARD TIME MAKING BOTH SIDES MATCH! FLOWERS ARE MUCH EAISER, THEY DON’T HAVE TO MATCH!! STICK WITH IT. A YEAR ISN’T VERY LONG. BEFORE YOU KNOW IT, YOU’LL AMAZE YOURSELF.

YES THOMAS, I SIGNED IT. AND YES, HE DID LOVE IT. HE GAVE IT BACK, BEFORE HE DIED. WE ONCE HAD A HORSE, THAT LOOKED JUST LIKE IT, THAT DAD AND I WERE BOTH VERY FOND OF.

Good job, Rita! Don’t stress about making both sides perfectly symaetrical, nature doesn’t!
