Greetings to the group,
This may be a little off topic but I haven't found another relevant group to
post this type of request.
I am looking to find someone in the South East Queensland area carry out a
restoration of an old timber rocking horse. I am located in the eastern
suburbs of Brisbane Australia.
It was one of my favourite things as a child ( I am now 36 y/o) which was
handed down to me through a number of generations. I have also handed down
to other younger family cousins etc and have now got him back for my young
son to enjoy, however he is looking a little worse for wear.
I have Googled for an hour or so and have found someone in New South Wales
(Approx 1300km from us) who can carry out the job or supply parts etc
required but would prefer a local enthusiast who would be happy to undertake
such a job.
The horse body and floor stand / frame is in complete and in good condition
with only a few loose joints which need attention, but all accessories ie:
mane, bridle, bit, blanket, stirrups and saddle are all now missing. I would
love to have the horse restored with all accessories.
I can forward photographs anyone interested.
The website in NSW indicates cost for a restoration to be about AU$600
(Which I guess would not include accessories like saddle etc) and I am more
than happy to negotiate a cost around this amount.
Please reply directly by email as I do not always have access to newsgroups.
Thanks in advance
Brisbane (QLD) Australia.
