Let's Ride!

I found this

"much love needed" 


rocking horse at a 

garage sale!

Would have you bought it looking like this?

I had my new Granddaughter in mind when I saw this...
 I decided to simply paint it white after cleaning and regluing. Also it was missing the handlebars.
I found some very soft yarn and made a mane and tail.
For now, it is up out of the way...
Way up out of the way...
Yes, it will be a while before she is ready to ride, but when she is, this rocking horse will be to!
