direction.
*Sew the legs with attached hooves to the sides of the body. Front legs
on the side of the chest muscle, and back legs at the back of the body
piece. Be sure to face the wide side of the hoof forward.

*Sew the nostrils to the top edge of the muzzle. Using the beginning
ring as a sewing guide, stitch the nostril down in the front. Working
around toward the back, and keeping the hdc sts upward to form the
cave, sew the back portion of the ring onto the muzzle.
*Sew the ears to each side of the head pointing upward. Put a “tac” in
the ear against the head to hold it in place and keep the ears in an
upward position.
*To make the mane: start on the head about one inch above and
between the eyes. Use the Posts to do a single crochet fringe to about
one inch from the body section. Fringe is alternating Charcoal/Black
and Grey Heather/Black.
*Attach bridle around the muzzle. Attach reins to bridle underneath
the muzzle.
*Place the blanket on the donkey’s back and the saddlebags over the
