We are currently planning our wedding, and found this awesome venue where we can bring our dogs and horses.
So I started thinking about making Leo look fancy for the wedding pictures, and was wondering if anyone knows good tutorials for braiding the mane with different color ribbon. I was thinking one long braid along the crest of the neck, with ribbon in our two wedding colors (orange and yellow). Kind of like you sometimes see at shows on Andalusians, Lusitanos and other baroque horses.
How thick would the mane need to be for that? He has a decent amount of mane, but nowhere near the floaty hair that you sometimes see on Andalusians. Would I need to cut it before braiding? Could I braid it the night before and then just add the ribbon on the morning of the wedding? Any advice on how to make it stay up?
Here's an example of what I was thinking of:
