New Horse-in-Hoop carving

Another of the Horse-in-Wheel carvings.  This one a little different.  The tail is carved verses the recycled fringe from an old rug I've been using.  The horse is thinner and more one dimensional with the front and back legs not separated.  The hoop is smaller also.  The height of the piece is approximately 10".   This is a gift for a friend of mine who is a professional horse trainer.  The front of the horse was cut open and hollowed out so it would balance.  A little note was sealed inside when the piece was glued back together.

The next one I do will sit on a stand that is motorized so it can spin in place.  I think it will look very nice.
