Do you know who created Overstrand’s Shore Horse?

Whoa! This horsey character has galloped on a storm ravaged north Norfolk beach - and sparked a mystery over who made it.
The 'shore horse' sculpture has been fashioned from debris left scattered at Overstrand following the winter sea surge.
Its body is a skeleton of brightly-coloured planks from former beach huts reduced to matchwood by the waves.
A tree branch head is adorned with a mane of twigs, and a rope bridle, while frayed nylon fabric makes a swishing tail.
A breadbasket saddle, and tarpaulin cloth underneath are finished off with a child's plastic beach spade as a stirrup.

The finished animal looks like a cross between a mini wooden Trojan horse and one of the puppet manikins from the War Horse stage show.
Neither the local arts centre nor parish clerk knew about the horse or its creator. So can you shed any light on who made Shore Horse?
