Have made 3 so far. I might make 1 more but instead of red oak I want to use cherry heartwood and sap. Should be a pretty paint.

If it’s for a girl, make it pink. Nice job.

Beautiful. LOL Gary I since a little hostility with the pink paint. I think Joe was talking about a paint horse though as the type.

Joe, I made a similar horse but the oak rockers split. To help prevent this, I added a “gusset” plate to the rockers. This is one of a set of horses (made from pine). Twin girls- so one horse was light with a dark mane and the other stained walnut with a light mane.
