It took Feivel three years to complete the carousel. Cousin Mikhael and his family came to watch as Mr. Nathanson turned it on for the very first time. “Papa, look at the horses fly round and round,” shouted Mikhael’s son. ” Tears glistened in Feivel’s eyes as his beautiful horses galloped gracefully in the air, among them Goldie, Hershel, Shmuel, Sasha, and Lena.
