One question how do you use the horse hair for the legs and which hair do you use (mane, tail, wither)?

@416841828773541 I tie in Horse Tail, and use the thicker part of it, get it positioned like I like, then heat a needle to just hot enough to bend the hair, but not damage the strength of the tail, and it will bend and keep the shape how I want it, I then work it until it’s to the desired shape!
