Well howdy partner!

This little cutie got a facelift that brought it from back in the 60's and into the farmhouse. 

I found this beauty in an antique store and I knew I could make him loved once again.

I began by removing the old felt mane from the rocking horse. Once he was naked I painted him with grey chalky paint and dry brushed it with white over the top.

The mess in the back is my workshop... right now it looks a little like Santa's workshop.

I made a new mane and tail for the horse using thick jute rope. The jute is like the macrame rope we used back in the 70's.

I attached the mane and tail to the horse using wood screws.

That's all it took to make this horse ready to be loved by a new family.

And it will be because it left today for it's new home.
