How exactly do you make the stroke (not fill) colour white/Whatever?

If you're taking a color from a swatch, go to Fill and Stroke and click Stroke by the top and select the color. Or you hold shift while clicking the color.

Great tutorial, but do you know any that can teach me how to make pony vectors from scratch as opposed to bases?

I feel really silly but I'm having a hard time getting that hair section above the horn. I'm selecting it and pressing ctrl+d and then shit+pg up, but I'm not getting it to go onto the horn layer. :( Am I doing something wrong?
