Scallop braids first attempt

I know that scallop braids are designed for a longer mane, but I thought I would try an experiment with them on G Man, I only did a few just to play, and so far I quite like the affect.

As you can see a bit rough and ready



But I like the look





This wasn't so much for the braids I just love his expression here

It's funny, he almost camouflages with the barn in that last picture. The braids are cool... I've never bothered to try them before, but maybe I will sometime.

A way that can help keep the fuzzies down is wet the mane a little and use some hair spray or gel one the braids. However I usually only do that for parades, shows or that kind of thing.

I agree Chameleon Horse!!!!!

I can't wait for Rebel's mane to grow out so I can do these....It's just too short since I cut it for Dressage D:

Those look GREAT on him! :)

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Good job GH! When I tried on my student's pony I just couldn't get it finished well enough to make me happy. Definitely going to do some more practicing!

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

It definitely takes practice, that was my very first attempt, I learned a lot just with those few.

I can't wait to have a go with the Haffies, I keep having this weird notion of fixing each braid with a little bow
