1. Begin the easy horse outline by sketching the horse's face. Outline the nose with a long curved line. Draw an irregular round shape for the eye, and shade a partial circle inside it. On the nose, draw a dot for the nostril. Place short curved lines above the eye and nostril and at the corner of the mouth.

Color your easy horse cartoon. Ours is brown with a darker mane. But horses come in a range of colors and patterns - black, white, brown, blonde, cream, grey, and even red.

Some have spots or specks. Others have markings on their faces called blazes or stars, or spots on their legs called socks or stockings.
