The World's Finest Rocking Horse

Well, we talked about English Rocking Horses earlier. When I looked through all my rocking horse photographs I found this:

This definitely is the finest rocking horse you can find on this planet. Made the traditional English way, completely hand carved - even mane and tail! The eyes are not made from glass, they are carved too and lacquered to this irresistible sheen. The wood? Solid mahogany, what else. Mounted on a bow rocker the overall length is 2 metres (= 79 inches). This is craftsmanship at the top stage!

The price? No, this horse is not for sale. Nobody who has ever touched such a piece of living wood would give it away. Be happy, it would break your bank anyway.
