Pros: easy to build
Love this horse and turned out easier to make than I expected. Long papers though, I had to cut out the parts but I realize it is a large horse.

We finished building this horse and he was in the parade in town this year. He is huge. Thanks for the plan.

Believe it or not, this is the horse.
My husband made 2 of them and then wrapped chicken wire, filled it with paper and spray foam. Then wrapped with fur and hair extensions for mane and tail. [Jim says - Wow! Amazing! We would love to see more photos!!]
