I am happy to say that Rebel Just for Kicks is done, with all his hairdos! If you want to follow his creation from the beginning, start here. It was a bit of trial and error, as most creations are. Not perfect, but I'm pretty pleased overall.
Which is your favorite look?

I chronicled the making of Rebel Just for Kicks, my 2022 NaMoPaiMo horse, on the blog almost through completion. Technically, I finished him for NaMoPaiMo. His paint job was done. However, part of his creation was to explore making magnetic, interchangeable manes and tails. I just ran out of time to finish making all the manes and tails.
I took him to a show in the spring and showed him in halter with the bottom of a tail that fit over the mud knot. I decided it wasn't tidy enough to show him in halter, so I permanently attached the bottom of his tail and sculpted it into the braided section so there was no seam.
I think that was a good choice, as he earned a NAN Top Ten (thanks to the buy-in!)
