    Actually Lazi came with the horrid little mini gelding. They were buddies, but I don't keep ponies so I found him a home. Yep, it was a 2fer with mine.

    My Cody is really good about lowering his head to be bridled, put on his fly mask and such. I stand on a step stool to do his mane, on my tip-toes to brush his back/butt. He's wonderful about picking up his feet.

    He just stands still. I have never braided his mane so I have no clue. I know that when I am standing on the ground next to him I can't reach his butt to groom it so the bucket method works for me.
    yup! 3 level step stood or a bucket. Depending on which one isn't in use.

    To braid her mane down her crest though (to the best of my ability) I stand on the stool until about the middle of her mane, have someone hold my place in the mane, get on her back and lean up her neck to finish the rest.

    It's a close contact wintec pro 500 changeable gullet. It is very comfy. The last picture is of my old saddle which is an Icelandic endurance saddle all purpose. It's comfortable but the wintec fits better and I ride much more centered in it so the all purpose saddle is Sissy's (percheron in my barn on here) saddle now since it fits boxiness perfectly.
