The horse was in pretty good shape for being so old. I know this because if you touch his mane or tail, it would disintegrate in your hands. The thing that most interested me about this him were the huge staples used to hold his mane in place. Gosh they were huge! I ended up pulling them all out and filling the holes with wood filler.
This project was by far one of my favorites. It was so much fun painting this little guy. I'm sure it will be just lovely sitting in Lily's room.
