Clay flower pot horse

I got the instructions for this horse from Facebook. I actually made two sizes but have to repai the small one it has broken legs right now. I did paint it with some rustolium spray primer and paint. It has light grey spots on it but they are hard to see. He has a team mane and tail but I think I need to make the mane and tail thicker than it is. I must say I donprefer working with wood than clay pots.
