I made this rocking horse for my godson from plans I downloaded from the internet. I used 1X pine and latex paint.

Nice job, I think those are about the best plans for a horse. I used them for one for my granddaughter.

Real nice. This is one of my favorite projects to build. The one I built for my nephews did however require a head reattachment after a couple years. The repair is several months old and perfoming well. Good work. Thanks for sharing.

Another fine member of the herd. I built the same rocker and now have another order for another of my grandkids. I love how you painted it.

Thanks guys!
I needed to repair this one as well – the kid got a little rambunctious with it and broke the ends off three of the legs. I had to reinforce them so they wouldn’t break again. :-)

I like the paint job. I used fake hair for the mane/tail. Looks good, but doesn’t stay in as well as the yarn. Next time I make one, I’m using 2x for the rockers instead of 1x to help prevent breakage.

That’s a very nice rocking horse. Congratulations and welcome to Lumberjocks.
