Yes, I would like to know too. This must be the best origami horse that I've seen so far!

It looks slightly modified, but I think it's essentially the same as a Horse he sent me about 15 years ago, which used the same base as a Lion that was published in one of the old BOS convention books. I did rough diagrams (very rough) for my personal curiosity, but knowing Stephen he would probably prefer to wait until he was ready to release his own.

Stephen was/is very prolific and must have a lot of excellent unpublished material. I hope we get to see it some day.

I did some poking around and found out Stephen has in fact diagrammed a horse.

Horse Weiss, Stephen BOS Convention 1998 Spring (BOS) 32

Horse Weiss, Stephen OUSA Convention Book 1994 (Kirschenbaum, Marc) 109

Hopes it's the same horse.

Thanks for the interest in my Horse. It has not been formally diagrammed, but I did teach it at the OrigamiUSA Convention in 2005. Right after the convention Brian Chan wanted to diagram the model, so I went through it with him while he made detailed hand drawn sketches of the steps. He thought he might draw them up formally if he had time, but I don't believe he did. I should do it.

Here are a couple of photos of the same exact physical model that was displayed in the Peabody-Essex Museum, with perhaps slight sculptural refreshing, and with better camera angles, although I really need to get a good camera--these were done with a four-year-old Samsung Flip-Shot three megapixel feature phone, and suffer from color consistency and other exposure and focus issues. But the shots came out okay after some adjustments on the computer.

I hate to resurrect an ancient thread, but I was curious if Mr. Weiss ever frequents the forum anymore and has any additional information on his wonderful horse? I still think this is one of the better origami horses out there and would love to see even a video diagram of it.
