This is so awesome. What a treasured picture.

I still have the rocking horse my Dad made for me over 70 years ago. All my children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews have stabled it in their home for a while over the years.

That is a Beautiful Picture Tom, In More than one way. Grampas are great People and you certainly proved that!

I just had to have a go at it to see if I could add something to it for YOU! If it’s NOT to your liking just say so and I will have it Deleted. I could also do a “Change” of the Original if YOU have any ideas, it would be My Pleasure!

Best Regards: Rick

Only 7 Hours You’ve been here and this ONE Post! WOW! A VERY HEARTY Welcome to Lumberjocks!

Beautiful gifta for your grandkids Tom, they look so pleased with them and they will likely be passed on to their kids in the future. The saddles and manes really made these special (and comfortable too).
