This rocking horse is a reproduction of one built in 1896 in Pennsylvania. The Germans who settled in the Pennsylvanian countries brought to America distinctive wood carving qualities. The rocking horse (or hobby horse) was a popular form of amusement for children. Many fathers made similar toy horses for their children to ride. The rocking horse is a form of folk art.

This reproduction, made by Robert McLellan during the summer of 1993 is made from recycled wood Most of the pine and Douglas Fir wood used to build this horse was salvaged from wooden shipping pallets. Several pieces of wood were previously used in the construction of a water bed. Robert concentrates most of his woodworking time on distinctive cabinets. All his wood products feature recycled wood.

This horse is a toy to be ridden by children.
