    Egh.. Chinga Got A "Trim".. Woops.

    So, I was attempting to trim my ponies mane this this afternoon, and well. Something happened and it ended up looking REALLY bad, so then I cut it a bit more to fix it up and a bit more.. I ended up with well.. this.. I'll have to get some desent pictures tomorrow, I didn't have my camera. So I took a video and took a screen capture. He looks really fail in this picture.. he was asleep, he also has his old halter on.. eww...

    From this:

    To.. well that...

    My instructor wasn't too happy when she saw what I'd done to him. .. Fail.. she then asked me how I was meant to plait for dressage... Not quite sure.. Maybe I can sticky tape it on. Just thought I'd share. I was only meant to take like 1/2cm off. Anyone want me to trim their horses manes

    Ah well, mistakes happen. On the bright side, I bet this will never happen again! I actually don't think it looks that bad...if you thin it a bit, you could probably band it.

    And this is why pulling is always better than trimming lol
    You could always just hog the rest of it to make him look a little better. Then when it starts to grow out and look weird you can just say you hogged it, not that it was a botched trim.

    Trim my horse's mane and I'll find you and steal your horse!
    It's never been cut and he's 3.5yrs! It's so long and pretty

    Hahahahaha oh dear! This is why we don't cut mane's to make them short ;) Cut to about 25cm long, then PULL it, otherwise you end up with that thick chopped off look that just looks terrible :S

    By the time you're ready to compete him though his name will have grown back enough to be plaited as long as he doesn't rub it out. Otherwise you can do fake plaits, but they are a real pain in the backside to do and definitely not a case of just sticky taping them on lol!

    Fake plaits, good idea!
