Braided Tail, Just For Fun. :]

This is the first time I've ever braided Daisy's tail. Her tail grows insanely fast and ends up dragging the ground, so I figured this would get it up off the ground, if only an inch.

What do you guys think? I know it's not perfect, but we don't compete or anything. :]

nice! I still can't figure out how to get it so smooth, especially at the top. Nice job!

Ha ha thank you! I got it wet a bit first, especially at the top. She was incredibly patient - it took me forever, lol.

Very pretty! :) I braid my geldings tail and mane a lot too just to keep it under control. I think he secretly hates it, but he stands there anyway ;)

That looks really nice! I also like to braid from time to time, it keeps it neat & it's very pretty!

Success comes a [bit] at a time.

Ha ha, my girl hates to be fussed over, but I do it anyway. She'll always shift her weight from side to side and sigh like, "Are you finished back there yet? I'm just going to shake it out when you're done..."

I swear I've seen her roll her eyes at me.

aww that looks so cute!!!
I love braiding my mares tail... she is a lovely bay/chestnut arabian and looks so beautiful with her tail done.. she is so good with her tail but for the life of me I can not get her to stand still for her main to be done.. and never get it tight enough.
She fidgits way too much for her main and then once I've done it she will jerk her head down and pull it out and then shake and it will all flick out..
Oh well her tail always looks gawjus. So does you mares tail.. Very pretty xD
