I am fortunate to own a number of his creations, including a table, a barn, a couple picture frames, a recipe box and a pair of deer.
He once carved a wooden replacement leg for one of my broken Breyers, but he never made me an entire wooden horse. That's unfortunate, because today's prompt for the May Shelter & Share Photo Challenge was "Wood love to see your wooden ponies."  I would have loved to have seen a wooden pony by Tom Bray. Instead, I was forced to scramble.

I knew I had a small wooden burro somewhere, probably in the basement. I started a hard target search and found this.
 Wow. I have no idea where this came from. I don't remember owning it. Why do I own it?!
Thankfully, I also found the burro.
Here's the official photo.
These photo challenges are really bringing out the best in my collection. As always, try not to be jealous!


  1. My uncle is a dentist and used to drill and pin the legs of our broken *Stablemates*.

    I have a Henning of Norway Fjord pony that I got when we lived in Stavanger in the summer of 1992; my dad was working there. And a set of hobby wooden horses that came roughed out and you finished yourself--I painted one as a carousel horse for me and one as a Civil War cavalry horse for my brother. I seem not to have pictures of those, though.

  2. Wow! That is so cool, I asked my dad if he could carve me a horse, but he said no...
