after the WorldSkills show in London last week.

A lot of heads turned as we bowled along the motorway to and from London, and at the show Bigger Bertie got his photo taken a zillion times - an experience fit to swell the head of even the biggest hand-carved rocking horse in the world!

It was a fantastic show and large numbers of people got to have a go at carving Bigger Bertie's tail - and he brought a smile to the faces of everyone who passed.

Now, glad to be back in his home yard in Yorkshire, he needs to have the remaining parts of his body carved and finished, and his tail fitted. But before that he needs a rest, and is in fact going into hibernation for the winter, sheeted up against the cold. Christmas is coming and there's work to be done for Santa Claus.

We'll be writing up the story of all the adventures on Bigger Bertie's first outing, and post any more news that crops up about Bigger Bertie - and if you've got any pics you'ld like to share, do let us know. Bigger Bertie will soon be rocking again, in the spring.

love, BB
