This horse is slightly over 2 feet tall. it is wood and carved in many different pieces. It looks to have some age and has glass eyes. The tail and mane are long missing. Is this considered folk art? the pose is assymetrical - even the ears are each in a different position. I think this was hand carved, but what would the purpose have been? it is the correct height for a riding toy but I see no signs of anything attached to the hooves and the legs are too delicate to be sat on. it looks like there might have been a bit in the mouth. Someone suggested it was a display for tack? Thanks for any info!
