Applejack's Apple Harvest by renegadecow Applejack's Apple Harvest by renegadecow
No pony appreciates a good days work more than Applejack. She loves the hard-earned life so much that she doesn't even look like she's working at all! Of course, not everybody is gifted with the talent for apple bucking. It's also an untold mystery as to how she can send each and every single apple into a bushel with nary a one touching the ground. But I think her ever faithful, canine companion Winona has rooted that secret out. That or she's on the lookout for bad apples.
The figures, stand, tree and bushel are carved out of Philippine mahogany while the gears and apples are made out of Narra hardwood. They're painted in enamel and protected by clear flat lacquer. Applejack stands at 5 1/8" tall (with her hat down) while the entire complete piece measures 11 3/4" high, 9 1/2" long, and 3 1/2" wide. It took 161 hours to complete.

This is the first one of your creations I've seen and after looking through your gallery of your other work all I can say is "WOW!"

Unfortunately it sold for over a thousand dollars which is a little out of my price range XD.

Horee sheet, maker, you keep outdoing yourself.
This is awesome! Just awesome! I love all the detail you put into it. AJ and the way she's painted, particularly the cute expression, the way her hat rises when she kicks the tree, the way apples keep on moving on that string and the way another always hides the slot from which they emerge, the carved apple tree motif shielding the mechanism inside, the tail-wagging head-moving panting Winona... It's beautiful, 's what it is!
This is a great idea, to have actual, moving apples here. I can only applaud you for designing a mechanism that can provide motive power to all of the diverse elements of the automaton with all of them moving at just the right speeds. You have tons of talent, maker, and I'm very happy to see more of your work. Marvellous job, and looking forward to what you will make next!

She turned out amazing, as expected! Winona is so cute and I love the movement of AJ's hat as she bucks those apples. That was a really nice little touch.
