Default Traditional rocking horse

When I started this I did not have anyone in mind who would want it but it soon found a new home with 2 of my great niece's.
Using the same construction technique as the bike.
Again the router was used to get all of the matching parts identical.
It took me a year to complete as when I got 1/2 way through I had a stroke luckily only a small one and this provided something after.

I only started this just to see if I could make a rocking horse and was pleased with the outcome.

Terrific. I'm not surprised he has a rosette on his chest, it's a definite first prize winner.
