Thanks for the compliments everyone.I hope I can bring a smile to your faces. If the moderator doesnt mind I will attach a photo of something else. This is a Native Australian Long legged Jumping Horse (Maybe if I put a saddle on her all will be ok .lol )Let me know if you want more shots of the horse construction or other stuff I've built.

I have all the tools, just not the talent.

The horse weighs about 900 pounds. It looks a lot heavier because the observers mind imagines the body is 'full'. Because I built it in parts of less than 120 lb weight I can assemble it on my own. The new owners concreted a square post in the ground and I assembled the pieces and tack welded them so any theives would not souveneir any of it. One of the hardest things was to create the impression that the jockey ( which weighs 160 pound) is only in contact with the horse was the stirrups and reigns. (There is a strong mount on the inside of each ankle)

how to build a horse

This foto gives a better idea of the process. Start with a pole. Attach a 'bolt on' primary frame. Install secondary' slip on' frame mounting rails . Get the external lines right from every angle with wire. Keep changing until you are happy. Then clad your mastepiece with treasures from the past. Cut the wire away as you go .It is only a guide ://photocamel.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=65004][/url]
