Just finished build, now to paint this lovely horse. Ready for great grandson at christmas. Build reduced to 75%. Print PDF of at 75% and use patterns on the wood, saves a lot of time. 
Also building one at 50% as a nursery Ornament, will post as build progresses. IMG_20161024_175944.jpg

This is great and two sizes, can't wait to see them side by side.  Your edges look very rounded, did you use a router?

Hi Cindy.  Used the router on legs and rockers but main body by hand. Think rounding legs both sides make then stand out from body. Hope to complete junior tomorrow, will post then Thanks

Update on the heirloom Rocking Horses

Large one made at 75% scale now primed ready for customers colour scheme.

Small one made at 50% scale now completed, seems to be quite popular with customers as nursery ornament  Stands 13" to top of mane, and 18" in length. Made entirely of MDF.

Fun Build  Fiddly to paint.

Thanks  Ken IMG_20161028_140535[1].jpg  IMG_20161028_140504[1].jpg

This makes for a fun set of rocking horses. Nice work! It looks like the smaller one would be right for the American Girl style 18" dolls. Thanks for posting-I was pretty excited to see these today.

These are great.  Thanks for the info on the smaller version being in high demand for decoration.
