This rocking horse has been a labor of love. I started out with 2 rocking horses...one was originally made for a special needs child and had a rather clunky base. The other reminded me more of a reindeer (can’t you just picture antlers on that beauty?). So I dismantled them both, cut down the legs of the one horse and reconfigured it to fit on the base of the other. I'm still planning on adding antlers to the sleeker horse and turning it into a reindeer but that's a future project. The resulting reconfigured rocking horse was then hand painted and sealed.
