Neat video, I much rather do my own braids tho, spend that time with my horse.

"I still haven't grown up" thought that was a cute comment.

That was awesome!

I liked the photos being played along with the sound part of it.
Thought that was really cool!

I would pay her to teach me to do that... I tried braiding manes and tails and they didn't look to good....

I'm guessing she would say "practice makes perfect" :) I can't imagine braiding for 8-10 hours a day.

Aw, makes me wish that I had learned to braid. I suppose I can, but it takes me much longer than an hour to finish a horse and mine don't look nearly as good.

Aw, how cool! :) LOL, I can't braid that well either...eh, I need to start learning.
I also couldn't imagine doing that for that long...it'd get boring to me, lol.

Ride more, worry less.

Great Video. I don't braid because on the rare occasion I show it is western so I band. I've only ever done it twice but how I learned is my 4-H leaders daughters showded me a couple, gave me instructions then went into the next stall and left me to my devices. It turned out fairly well after I re-did each one like twice

On the first day god created horses on the second day he painted the good ones
