Jeanne Arvidson Sayeth:
My daughter was driving down the highway in Minneapolis,MN. today and just happened to have her phone on when she
saw one of your horses going down the highway, and took a picture and sent it to me. The merry go round at the county fair used to be the first place I would go as a little kid---many years ago. I've had horses all my life until just recently, and still love them. I found all this very interesting to read about.

Wow...gorgeous...saw your work in the parking lot of the Black Bear Restaurant in Vacaville. Drooling over ... wish I could have one of my own. What a treat to see it...Thanks for adding some beauty, joy and happiness to the world. (She also left lovely notes on our truck telling us how much she loved our BEAUTIFUL horse.)

I have never encountered such giant rocking horses before. I was truly delighted when I laid eyes upon Vlad, the ginormous unicorn, at the Kearney Park Renaissance Faire today. Riding Vlad was more wonderful than my inner child imagined on her own. Thank you for making the day extra awesome with your beautiful rocking horses. I really look forward to riding Vlad again in the future!!

When will you get a YT presence flash and lady flash?
Answer: We do have a YouTube channel. Just look for the Rockinghorseguy's channel. We don't have one for our photography business as The Flashing Scotsman is still photography, and that doesn't lend itself to YouTube. Thank you for asking!

In all my years of working renaissance faires with doing scavenger hunts at various events and seeing you I never took the time to ride one of the horses until this past weekend. I had ssssoooo much fun and haven't laughed or screamed that much in all my 12 years of doing faire. What a wonderful ride, made me feel like a kid again. Thank you so much!! I will certainly ride again when I see you at the next event. Also, thank you for your donations to our scavenger hunts offering a free ride as a prize. I very much appreciate your support and contribution. Thank you!!

Only just recently did I discover the most craziest ride. My boyfriend and I went to the Scottish festival in Watsonville. I was hesitant to want to ride one with my boyfriend, because it looked childish, but once I got on, the rocking became a crazy but wonderful nightmare! As I was screaming and laughing, I noticed one of you taking my shoe off and another tickling my foot! Haha! That just made the whole thing even better!!! Thanks guys!

This is an incredible idea turned into a business. We are impressed and proud of your hard work in making this happen. Thank you for sharing your work with my husband. ( Dr. Marxen is the talented and exceedingly skilled orthopedic surgeon who fixed up the Rockinghorseguy's knee and is adding years to our rocking capabilities--we HIGHLY recommend him if you need orthopedic surgery and can come to San Diego.)

Hands down, definitely up there with one of my favorite experiences yet! It's not jumping off a plane, or climbing Mount Everest, but its up there with faeries, dragons, knights, and magic! Thank you for your work.

Beth Rice sayeth:
Loved hanging out with Lester and Vlad at Liberty Station several months ago. I was at first unwilling to ride (mostly due to the fact that we'd JUST eaten at the New Corvette Diner but partially due to the fact that I am not all that fond of heights)...I was finally able to get the stomach to settle and set my 'fears' aside. THIS was SUCH a fun time and one of the BEST Date Nights I've had. My best friend and I are planning our 20 Year High School reunion and are having an ALL CLASS Family Picnic at a Local Park and are REALLY hoping that Lester and Vlad can share in all the fun with us!

Very unique!!! Very fun to watch all the videos. Never had seen such incredible horses/unicorn. Love the pic & write up on your cat she is part of the park here. Good luck to your next project Trey.

Hey Les and Kat!
I just watched the new videos, toooo much fun. My face hurts from smiling. The lady belly dance on the home page was a riot! Keep making the magic!
