At first glance I wasn’t a huge fan of these horse printables. However, after going back and re-investigating I believe these could be useful to a creative artist. The pictures offered here are varied, but most seem to be missing the details. This offers your budding artist the perfect opportunity to fill in the blanks and develop that talent and ability a bit. In addition, filling in the details may serve to keep them busy far longer than the normal coloring page.
These pictures are another one that requires the child to fill in the details when coloring. These, however, are so excellent in their shapes that they can be used by teachers for patterns and projects aside from coloring. In addition, adults would even have fun adding the realistic details and characteristics to individualize these. These would look great in an arts and crafts project or on a bulletin board!
