When the back of the mane is completed, insert the next row of mesh so that they plough towards the nose and keep doing that all the way out to the front of the frame, on the lower 2 sections of the wreath frame, alternate the colors of mesh as you become.
This will requite a sweeping mane await to your horse head wreath.
You can create a hanger on the back by taking a full pipe cleaner and connecting it from the dorsum of the ear to where the forelock is. You can too cover the back with a covering if y’all desire.
