A hand made wooden Bow Rocker Rocking Horse made in Australia by Don Metcalfe.
These horses are heirloom quality and very few are made. Each horse takes up to two months to make once an order is received.
We have a sample in our store that you can look at. In fact the sample horse is our own that we purchased in 2004 for our children. They and their friends have really given this horse a lot of use. The fact is that it still presents well and our children will probably use it for their children. This horse is not for sale.
However from time to time we expect to have a horse in stock ready to sell. No two are ever the same which adds to their appeal.
Don Metcalfe uses timbers from his own property and shapes them all by hand. Leather accessories such as the saddle are also locally made and add the finishing touch to these fine examples of Australian workmanship.
Don and his wife spend most of their time these days looking after injured wildlife and we have coaxed Don out of semi-retirement to make some rocking horses for the lucky few. If we don't have a horse in store it would take up to two months to build one since Don and his wife prioritise their work with injured Australian wildlife first.
BREAKING NEWS: DON HAS DECIDED TO LOOK AFTER INJURED WILDLIFE ON A FULL-TIME BASIS AND IS NO LONGER MAKING THESE HORSES.
