Laying Them Down

logoongray1979 was the year I made my first rocking horse.  Since then I have been on quite an adventure with ups and downs, ending on such a peak these last few years. 

Now it is time to lay them down and go on to new adventures.  Therefore I will not be making any more rocking horses.

I have met so many wonderful people, made new acquaintances and gleaned invaluable help from others more knowledgeable than I am in the woodworking department.

I want to thank all the customers who thought a Wilson rocking horse was worth purchasing.  I hope the horses continue to bring pleasure for years to come to those who ride them.

It means so much to me to have brought such happiness to so many people with my rocking horses. When God gives you a talent, then the directions to carry it out - it is so satifying to see His hand at work with these gifts.

Below, you'll see a few of our testimonies.

Jackie, I wanted to thank you once again for the lovely tribute to my beloved mare Hope Of Grace. She sits on our shelf in the living room and i get to look at her every day. You went above and beyond to make sure the rocking horse looked like her. You are a very talented artisan.

Hello Jackie, This is late in coming, but I wanted to tell you how happy I am to have one of your beautiful rocking horses. I first read your story in Guide Post. I showed my husband your website and told him it would be a great birthday gift. He was somewhat surprised with the price. He totally shocked me with the gift of one of your artwork. I have a horse named Foxy Llady. She is an Appy. Thank you for getting it to my husband in such a timely (manner). My birthday was great. I just love it. It was quite a surprise.
God has given you such a gift of woodworking.  Bless you, Thanks again, J.
