GEMMA BUILDS A ROCKING HORSE

 

One day Gemma decided to build a large rocking horse.  She had to build her own because ready made ones were to expensive and too small.  The problem is how could she make a large horse on a small budget?  The answer was to make a mould and use glass reinforced plastic (GRP) or fiberglass.  

 

Gemma decided it would be easy to shape her horse from expanded polystyrene foam.  This can be cut with a saw, shaped with a surform and sanded with ordinary production paper, 40 and 60 grits.  The project continues ...................

We believe every horse, pony and donkey has the right to be part of a loving family where it will be cared for and loved to the end of its natural life.
