This is a Walnut Mustang Rocking Horse I made for my daughter last Christmas. I’m just getting around to posting it (a year late). The walnut has some fun grain and some crotch figure as well. It has accents with curly maple. She loves this rocking horse and it is a big hit any time her friends or cousins come over. I apologize for the bad pictures. Enjoy.

That is a beauty! I have not seen one in this configuration before.
You did a great job!

Excellent! You really are creating an heirloom legacy for yourself. Quite an improvement from the original plans.

Ditto, I really like how it’s running instead of just standing! And very nice execution of the project too!

Nice job and that’s one of the fastest horse’s I’ve ever seen just sitting there. LOL

Excellent use of the grain in the legs and head and neck. Makes it look like horse hair. Nice job Mark!
