Yes, we made like Bill Murray today, minus the chainsaw. The pic below is of our instructor showing us how to use the one power tool we were allowed to employ, a rotary sander.
Here's a close-up of our horsie.
And the finished product! There were 5 horses for 13 of us to work on. At the end of the class, we got to pick one horse to have shipped back to school for our Final Buffet (=final exam), and the class picked my partner's and mine! The others were nice, too, but they couldn't sell them, so they were wheeled out into the sun, tipped over, and left to melt. :(
