G'pa P.M. loved working in his basement shop making all kinds of things, including wine and beer !! He created replicas of vintage wooden toys, making his own patterns at times ! Rocking horses were one of his favorites and he made a few different sizes and shapes of them after seeing one that I had made for Hilery after she was born. One of my beauty salon clients had a grandson that made that one. This toy horse has been in our home for over 20 years - he measures about 12" inches high at the ears, has a leather "saddle" and reins, twine tail and mane and rocks on hinges. A unique gift from a beloved father/father-in-law !
