Okay so it's hard to find a nice book to reference what muscles attach where on the bones. It kinda ends up as a jumble of overlapping stringy pieces of meat on a horse shaped structure. Kinda like untangling a necklace. Well, here's how far I got:
The neck is mostly done. I lengthened the 'head' and blocked out the cheeks.
I keep moving and shaving off the belly and end up with a shifted
