If it seems I'm double speaking you're right. Am also hooking two horses one after the other. I liked the previous horse adaptation posted and am liking this one even more. If this guy looks a little swayback you would be right. But the original antique shows that as well.
I'm adapting this from the antique rug below and chose to not hook a border. But perhaps in the future I may attempt a replication of this one as antique rugs are near and dear to my heart.
