I was told that I should start banding my pony's mane for shows. He has the thin mane typical in Appaloosas (he's half POA and half Appy, reg. POA though!) and, in places, it sticks straight up.
HOW do you band this? It seems nearly impossible considering his mane's not more than 5-6 inches at the longest point and very thin.
