Look familiar to anyone?

This project is actually a couple years old. I made this for my granddaughter for Christmas 2017. It’s actually how I discovered this site – I was looking for ideas for an all-wood rocking horse and found this exact design on another project thread here (same title). The poster very helpfully provided some patterns for it that I printed and made the templates from.

The pics show the story of laying out the pattern, cutting the template, and some assembly.

Sadly, I see that CDavy who posted the original hasn’t been around since then, but thanks for the inspiration and the pattern!

That is a nice pattern. It is the same one my dad made for us kids back around 1948. The only difference I noticed was our horse had leather ears and a rope tail. Nice work.
