Some of you know that I recently built a funeral coach and had started working on the horse. I have decided to continue the horse updates on a seperate thread. Here is what has taken place so far:

I started with a picture of a horse which I printed out on a transparency and placed on an overhead projector. I traced out the image on a piece of 3/4" pressure treated plywood and cut that out. I then hung the cut out from the ceiling of my workshop and the approx. height of a horse.



After that, I added supports so I could add pieces of plywood to help build out the side of the horse to the approx width of the horse.



I then added the plywood side pieces and some legs and built out the area around his head.



Then was the chicken wire. I ended up having to add shoulders to the horse and more support arount the nose area but I think it looks like a horse! I am planning on starting the monster mud process next weekend.



I also added PVC tubes on the front and back half of the horse to allow me to slide 3/4" pipes through the horse to allow 4 people to carry the horse easily.

That is incredible. I wouldn't even poder such a build. It looks fantastic so far. Please keep the pics coming - can't wait to see how it turns out.

And good thinking, putting in the PVC to make it easier to carry.

Yes, but we all know the devil is in the details. I am not looking forward to the nose, eyes, main and tail. Oh, and those horse feet! One step at a time.......
It already looks more like a horse then I ever though it would.
