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.

One of Jackie's Custom Creations: "Shabby" Horse

The Shabby Black and White Horse with Bridle

This horse is a custom creation for a lady who found Jackie's website and information on the Internet. She saw that Jackie can do custom work, so asked if Jackie could try an "Shabby" black and white horse. Jackie knocked it out of the ballpark! The lady was thrilled with her horse.

Below, on the left, you see the special horse resting comfortably in it's new home. On the right, you see a second, modified version of it that Jackie did after her first black and white horse.
