I recently made sockhorses for my little men. My mother made me one when I was small and so I thought I would recreate the fun with a pair of my own. All it took were three large white socks (one for the ears and nostrils) yarn for the hair, and stuffing. For the halter I used ribbon and then I used scraps of fabric for the necktie. My boys were pleased as punch to saddle up on their new friends.
