Ole Hik'ry

I have a friends that had a baby boy about a year ago and ive kinda adopted him as a grandbaby . He is the cutest lil fella and all the girls swoon and make over him .

Anyway , The candlelady and I discussed the need for all lil boys to have a wild stallion to break and ride when they are searcing the world for the bad guys , and trying to outrun mommy and her nasty tasting medicine !

I had a stash of Hickory lumber I had bought to make a couple mandolins, and decided it would make a real good stallion .


Ian has a new buckin bronco , and gandpa needs a new stash of hickory.

Walnut handles on the head and saddle area .

That tail is actually grey , but looks bluish in pic.

Walnut "sturrips"

He is finished with Lemon Oil and as he gets older he will age naturally .

Thanks for visiting "Ole Hik'ry"
