    Sorry! Consider the thought dead!

    When you say running braid, do you mean one that is pulled tight to the neck, or one that gradually falls down?

    Try both and see which is easier to do and looks better. My 1st thought would be tight to the neck though.

    I like doing the ones pulled tight, although by the time I'm finished I feel arthritic. I can't decide what I'd like to do with her mane now, I'll have to ponder for a while, or start a poll.

    My Morgan mare has a long mane I "play" with. I try different braids and try and grow it as long as I trail horse (aka my tank) has a roached mane.....too much work to keep up with two. All though she now has a 2 inch mohawk that is a length I really like and I think I will keep it at. But unless your horse has the right neck for a roach I wouldn't do it :)

    Holy cow that horse is cute!! I vote for pulling the mane short.
