This was an repair job that I finished this last month. These gorgeous carved horses were carved for my customer in her youth. She is now in her 80's. I had to repair and replace a couple of ears, and carve down the tail of the foal that had been previously repaired and was not really correct. The hardest part was to dull down an extremely shiny finish that was also from that previous repair. Pretty stressful working on something so old and also sentimentally valuable. But she is now happy.
