SOLD ~ Beautiful dapple grey rocking horse - Stunning & realistic ONE - OF - A - KIND Rocking horse
Pierre is an absolutely exquisite rocking horse with the most amazing extra carving to his neck, legs, stifles & rump. He is incredibly realistic.
Very few of these horses were crafted as their extremely talented carver sadly passed away, so this really is a very special boy to be treasured & appreciated.
The attention to detail that his carver has undertaken, to mimic tendons & muscle tone is quite incredible.
His saddlery is leather & his saddlecloths one of which is slightly faded, are in good used condition with some age related marks.
His bridle & martingale are removable & his bridle is beautifully made with buckles & keepers & a very unusual western style bit that fits his mouth perfectly & looks to have been made especially for him.
His nostrils are beautifully carved & he has a lovely soft friendly expression.
His hooves have been carved realistically & are rounded around his fetlocks with extra carving to mimick tendons also on his fetlocks.
He has a lovely outstreched gait to his legs & these photos really do not do him Justice.
Please note that he is not a new horse and his approximate 20 year old condition reflects this, he consequently has some historic wood movement - hardly noticeable which does not detract from his absolute beauty, he remains strong & sturdy.
Pierre stands a good height at 48" high and is large in the body, quite a substantial horse.
Situated in the UK.
