Jamish is looking for a new home. Made by Palomino Rocking Horses and donated to Project Promise to help raise funds for a new cancer unit for Northland.
Not long after his generous donation of 'Jamish' to Project Promise, Alex was diagnosed with late-stage cancer. He named the horse ’Jamish’ after the dr who diagnosed him. Sadly Alex passed away a few months ago.

Palomino Rocking Horses are totally NZ designed and hand carved achieving outstanding strength and durability.
These are heirloom pieces designed to last generations. Unlike other rocking horses, Palomino Rocking Horses are made with layered marine grade ply to give the shape of a real horse.
Quality is built into every detail. The stainless steel swinging iron are fitted with nylon bearings for silent and long lasting easy movement.
A unique feature is that they have steps for the infants to get onto themselves safely. As well, the handles are fitted over a stainless steel rod going through the neck.
The clear natural finish highlights the carving through the laminated layers of plywood. Top quality marine plywood used for strength - it will not warp or twist regardless of age, sun or heat. The saddle and bridle are real leather and the mane and tail are sterilised real palomino horse hair.

Horse - 1170mm long 350mm wide 950mm high
