Dollar tree usually sells tube socks for children. Cut them like you would a tail bag made from a tube sock. Braid the mane in 5 or 6 braids and bag it up!

I did make them last year. Several sets, and yeah, they were really easy. Didn't like them tho, and found, unless I was at one friends where the mud is more like stucco (seriously, she could sell it, I think) ragging was just as good. I was also more afraid my guy would pull out the whole bags and hair with it-many times I do nothing, and his mane looks great. I have found out that if you occasionally cut the ends and even it of a little bit it grows really well. So, I cut it (*GASP*) then slightly "roughen" the ends with the scissors so it doesn't look like it was chopped off. The horses at our barn that have manes like this

Never go outside, and are braided every time they are ridden. Just not realistic in my world, and IMO it is just a bit much.

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......
