I can't remember if I mentioned this, but a few months ago, my father in law entered one of his hand carved rocking horses into a national art competition sponsored by PBS. Out of the thousands of entries, he won fourth place. I've had the pleasure of seeing his pieces in person and they are amazing and so beautifully crafted. The child that recieves one of these heirloom pieces is truly lucky. Bob also handmakes cradles in addition to rocking horses. If you're interested in more information about purchasing his work, leave a comment and I'll put you in touch.
