Below tie a red and white interwoven thread, but don’t make it too tight. The red threads from the firs tie must pass through it too.

Bend the rest of the white threads to shape the head of the horse.

The red threads from the first tying will be used for the mane – just tie knots.

Tie the thread, remaining from the second tying, to shape the neck of the horse.

At the end cut with the scissors the tips of the white threads and glue the eyes to make your horse more beautiful.
