We have sat down and sorted through rooster pictures and have decided on a color scheme so I need to buy the paints that will get us close. I'll be using alkaloid enamel paints for this one which are getting a little hard to find now but there are still a couple of local sources for it. It still needs some sanding work and a bit of carving. Mostly to reemphasize some of the detail in the feathers which has become obscured by sanding. That kind of carving I can handle. I'm hoping to at least get the sanding done this weekend during the garage sale since we will be out there for a couple of days.

|The head of the armored horse, those are the blanks for the legs on either side of it.|
|You get a better sense of the leg blanks here, in reality the legs are almost finished. These are really old pictures.|
|The Ostrich. My Dad was considering doing the rest of his carving at this scale and moving away from the full size carousel horses and animals.|
