The second page in the log book for this figure dates to 1994, and shows that the legs were blind doweled at the knees only. No other sheets are filed, which means that there have been no repairs or repaints since 1994.

A notation has been recorded in the touch-up log showing the expansion crack appeared 4 years prior without movement at the joint. This years evaluation showed movement and the figure was pulled to do this repair as well as a repaint due to the general appearance of the figure.

Note that the leg is a dropped leg (see arrow). Legs in this position are often used as a ladder when riders mount the figure.
