The Horse

This figurine of an old swaybacked horse goes way back.  My grandpa found him one day, and I decided to add him to our family Nativity set.  I don't think my mom appreciated it, but it became a family tradition to put the horse there.  When I got married, I took it with me and added it to my own set, until recently when I retired my old plaster set and bought a new ceramic one.  The horse didn't seem to fit anymore, and he was retired to the attic.  When I did the Day 6 sketch of my new Nativity set, my daughter asked about the horse, and down he came from the attic to become a sketch prop.
