figure piping horses

I was trying to design a horse cake and create a figure piped horse. I ended up with a reasonable looking design but I wondered if anyone has a better technique. I piped a body neck and head on the top of the cake, no legs.

I was making them laying down. The legs just didn't look right, I must be missing an angle. I ended up without legs alltogether! A horse body and head was all I got out. I used hight pressure to make the rear of the horse adn tapered towards the head, then made a pile for the neck and a pile ( of frosting that is) for the nose meeting up to the head. 2 tiny ears on top.

Hi Kim,

Have you considered piping the horses laying down, so that you can include the legs? This is just a thought, since I don't know what you're finished design looks like.

Hope this helps.
