After many requests, I have finally put together instructions for my kinetic horse sculpture. A huge thanks to Ben Gee, for creating and sending me a mostly complete LDraw file to start from.

I took the opportunity to improve a few things from the original, and the result is a much stronger model. I also redesigned the feet, and tweaked the head to use more commonly available parts. You can still use the Piraka heads for hooves if you can find them.

More info and details can be had by following the link to the instructions.

    Jason has created a beautiful and amazingly intricate horse MOC. When I first saw it, I immediately thought of Eadweard Muybridge photographs and movies capturing horse movement.  I’m amazed by Jason’s ability to capture this movement with Lego pieces. I hit a bit of a snag when building the model. Jason patiently responded to my e-mails and pointed out a mistake I made on step 31 (page 45 of the PDF instructions). The 1 x 5 thin black lift-arm should be pointed upward. Thanks, Jason. I managed to acquire the original Bionicle Piraka heads to use for the hoofs. They do look better.  I've posted a few photographs here and more (along with two  brief videos) in my Google Photos gallery.

      Glad to hear you got it all working! I spent a LOT of time watching that Muybridge clip while I was designing this model to try to get the motion right. :)
