Ernie:
It wouldn't hurt to add more of an angle at the end of his neck.
Bandit:
Add more detail into his mane.

They are really good though!

You certainly have an excellent start. I adore the silhouette of the heads but I would also love to see a little more smoothness, and of course the next step will be adding shading and/or color. However, you really seem to get a little sloppy when you get to the necks/hairing detail. Think about it this way: the neck is the supporting line that translates the eye of the viewer from the horses head to their body, so it should be a clean and immaculate line that accentuates the horses' curvature of topline. Basically, be sure youre paying just as much attention to the neck lines as you are to the rest of the horses' head. Some tips for hairing: always start from the same area, as if the tip of your drawing utensil is the follicle of the hair, leading smoothly into a naturally laying shaft. I like to start at the base of the neck and individually hair each stand until the mane looks full and complete. Then I go back in with an eraser and a shading tool to add highlights and soften the look a bit. Hope that helps - you have a great start!

Wow is all I can say

Only those who risk going too far, can possibly find, how far they can go.
