That is weird. Is that the right when facing them? Because almost every horse I know it falls to the left side when facing them.

It should fall to the offside, so over to the left when you face them, or on the right if you are sat on it :)

Ok, so his is on the "correct" side then lol. So it was nice out, cold, but nice and sunny so I went out and attempted to do the running braid on him. I need a lot more practice. But here is attempt one and two. The first three are attempt number one, and the other four are attempt number two. I need to stick with the one two add hair, that is why it got waved on the second attempt. And I need to keep it a bit tighter. Then I think I can at his end little hairs to it.

Joe has a Hair DO

My Joe had a mop of hair - literally, if you cut it off and put it on a stick , you could have washed the floor with it. But we were going to a show, so I was wondering what to do with his wiry mane that lay every way it could lay, including sticking up. It felt like polypropylene string.

So there was I, walking along the street towards the chemists to collect some medications and just as I am about to enter the shop, a young woman came out with a simply fantastic head of hair. She had dark brown, shiney, straight hair - almost to her waist - Cher style. I stopped and gawped. I could not resist.

So I caught up with her and asked her what she used to condition her hair. After all who might know better. She looked at me, gave me a gorgeous smile and said one word: "Tresomme".

Then she asked why I wanted to know - bearing in mind that I have been bald since the age of 22. So I told her about my Joe. Much to my delight she gave me another smile and this time a kiss on the cheek.
I'd made her day - she had thought I was some sort of talent scout.

So I bought Joe a bottle of the stuff and I have been known in the shop ever since as the 'Tresomme man'.

Great story - but I would not say that the experiment was a success.
The expensive gooey smelly liquid didn't do much for horse hair.

Some months later I discovered the only thing I could do with Joe's mop - was to hog it with garden shears - or just leave it as it was - his trade mark.

OMG, you make my laugh all the time! I love your posts. Needless to say I don't think human shampoo can tame wild, unruly, and hugely thick horse manes. And that lady probably did a lot more than just use shampoo on it. Women, (myself included), tend to spend a tedious amount of time on making our hair look just right and putting massive amounts of products in them to make them stay that way.

I used this plait on Corkies mane to keep it all on one side. It seems to help.

Well this came up at the right time. I just braided Hunters mane a week ago last Sunday. He had such a beautiful mane white full etc all on one side (the right one). Then his pasture pal chewed it off. We had to almost roach it and he had a mohawk. Now almost 9 months later it is growing in and wouldn't ya know the top half flips over to the other side. Grrr. Is it really bad to leave braids in for too long???

Here is a pict from when he was 18 months with a running braid. I didn't do it though he was being used for a grooming clinic.

Ha haha old Duke the percheron I leased had quite the head of hair, but at least it was split equally down both sides. Not that I didn't try all sorts of ideas to make it stay on one side.
