Horsies! A Very Old Red Horse Designed for 2 Kids, and a Vintage Rocking Horse

Here are a couple of children’s horsies for you to choose from!

The red horse with black features is clearly an antique, although a quick run through the thousands of photos of “red wood horses” didn’t find any similar to this one. 

This horsie was designed for two small children to ride together as you can see from the two sets of pegs… or perhaps one larger child who wanted to sit toward the rear, and perch his or her legs on the front pegs.

The neutral colored rocking horse with the yarn mane isn’t nearly as old… perhaps 1970s (?).  That still makes him vintage, or even close to antique, the way some people define antiques.

Condition: 

The red antique horse has been well-loved.  Really well-loved.  And even has broken his front leg, possibly in service to a generation of bouncing, excited kids.  He needs a lot of restoration work (including the “handles” that are missing as shown by the holes in the poor guy’s head) – or could be displayed as is, in all his well-worn beauty.

The vintage neutral colored rocking horse is in very good shape.

Dimensions: 

Red antique horse:  31″L x 9″ W.  It’s 10.5″ to the top of the seat, and 20″ to the top of the horse’s head.
Vintage rocking horse: 26″ L x 7.5″ W.  It’s 14″ to the top of the seat, and 22″ to the top of the horse’s head.

Price: 

Red antique horse:  $35.00.
Vintage rocking horse: $20.00.

Both for $$45.00.
