In the old days, the basic structure of the rocking horse was wood, and it was carved in several pieces and then pegged together before being covered with a thin layer of a plaster-like substance called gesso. The paintwork usually represented a dappled grey, although animal skins, often deer or calf, were also used as a covering. The rockers were often painted green to resemble grass.
