Well after a small hiccup at the end of last year I have now just completed the rocking horse. I would like to thank Sad Sam for without him I may of never undertaken this project. Just hope it lives up to his standards.
 
Some more views of the Horse

And I did state when I started It may end in tears but at least not by me so will now wait to see what the recipient of the horse thinks

What can I say that has not been said Derek, I hope it becomes a legacy in your family for many many generations.

No pressure then.
