  • Kicking Horse

    Here's another horse out of Butternut. He's about 7" long and his tail stands about 7" tall. This one was more difficult because of his pose.

          Like it, Like it, Like it, Well proportioned, good pose. I bet you had to be careful with the back legs, with the grain change vs direction of the legs.

                    Great Job there Joe. What finish did you use. Butternut was a great choice.
                    Merry Christmas.

                      Thanks everyone for your comments, I'm glad you like this horse it was fun to carve.
                      JoeB, yes the grain runs with the front legs so the right rear leg is cross grain but I didn't have any problems with it.
                      Bob, I used warm walnut Danish Oil. I was a little sorry because the end grain on the back turned darker than I like.
