The Pond

We had an old (empty) coal bunker in the front garden, half of which had been filled in as garden - but the shrub had died, so we took it out, removed the earth, knocked down the dividing wall, added a good strong pond liner.... and hey presto... a pond.... complete with fish (although tiny at the moment!)

As If We Haven't Enough of the REAL Thing...

we now also have a side saddles in miniature!


Kathy's Rocking Horse is only about 2ft high - the saddle was actually made for one of those larger wooden horses - but doesn't Mushroom look cute!

To give you an idea of the size

The saddle is made to 1/10th scale and is perfect in every detail


and a bridle - also in perfect detail

the saddle is complete with girth and balance strap!
There are only THREE of these particular saddles in existence - all made here in Devon. 
One was (I believe) presented to the Queen, and we have the other two. 

for ornamental decoration only on a rocking horse
