After finding the plans for this Rocking Pony, I had to make it for our two year old granddaughter. The body is aspen and the saddle, mane, and tail are red oak. All is coated with General Finishes semi. One thing this project had a lot amount of waste. The pink rhinestones gives a little girl’s touch. Fed Ex print shop was able to enlarged the pattern to actual size. This was fun project however the real pleasure will be watching her on Christmas morning.

One of the best I have seen. Where did you get the plans? I have a granddaughter who is 4 months old. Something like this is in her future.
