nice job on this fun toy. I bet the new owners really appreciated it. Did you sign date the bottom or somewhere on the horse.
If this gets handed down it is nice to see when it was made and where it came from over the years. [thumb]

Nice colour scheme and thanks for posting the progress shots. 
I have this plan and have it on my "to do" list for my new daughter that arrived 2 months ago. 

Long live the hand made gifts. I get so much joy from the smiles from the recipients. The hand made timber toys are appreciated more and outlast the commercial plastic crap out there.

Cheers

Thanks for the how-to photos. I learn something from every post and this series of photos is extremely helpful to me as I design the next series of rocking horses.

I actually glued and screwed the legs onto the body. Two screws in each leg counter sunk and capped with dowels. I wanted more than just glue. And yes it says Randal's Redwood Designs on the bottom and 2015

It has my Randal's Redwood Designs name and 2015 on the inside of one of the rocker rails.
