His name is Neil Patrick Hesh. (The Princess says "hesh" for horse.)
I made him using Simplicity 2921 and a piece of pink plaid suiting fabric I had in the stash.
I didn't have any fake fur, so I used a bit of fleece for the mane and tail. I think it gives him a bit of a punk/ mohawk flair.
The pattern went together really easily, do not be intimidated by step 8, if you are thinking of making it. The hardest part was cutting it out and making his hooves nice and round. I may have rushed that last bit, because I was so close to having an entire horse made. They suggest making it with fleece and I'm pretty happy that I didn't, because I think the curves would have been harder to follow. The suiting had a tiny bit of stretch that worked in my favor.
The Princess is a fan.
She'd prefer you not touch it, thanks.
