It’s a real cute rocking horse and you did a fine job on him too.

Looks beautiful. Did you use a pattern for the design? If so could you let me know which one. Thanks.

Beautiful work! I made that same one a couple of years ago, and it gets used still to this day! If I did it over again, I’d make mine out of oak as you have. Excellent job!
