I put it in a pretty running braid, wanna get creative you can braid ribbon in it. Done it before.
I always had to braid my mares mane or else I ended up grabbing it when switching hands, her mane reached her shoulder. My new guys hair isn't long enough to braid yet (think he ripped some out) but its thick and will need braided when it grows back out. Posted via Mobile Device
I don't like you all who can do a running braid..I can't do a pretty running braid that will stay to save my life..I missed that skill..I will just brush and Cowboy Magic their mane most of the time..In the summer when it's like 100 everyday I'll do a funky braid..I'll band pieces about an inch or two wide then go back and tuck them over, a topsy-tail or whatever you want to call it, then braid the pieces..It keeps the whole braid neat and in place.
Haha I can't braid a running braid either but I enjoy bringing my little sister along to shows because she can braid anything all kinds of ways....this was from this past weekend when she braided my mares mane and tail.....do not pick on the my mares lack of hair(main) and she is still shedding out a little (this was the day after a nasty storm and no bath after just a quick brush down).
