Well he is getting a BATH today, that will upset him no end, but he has a clinic, a schooling show and his first ever Kur test this weekend

I think he looks very handsome (in a frippy kinda way!!). It is a good look on him, even with the shorter mane. Just remember to pull those braids as tight as you can without making his eyes bulge!!

Aww, he just makes me so happy. They look great!

Lol great minds think alike though! I tried it today on Finn, too.

These are my favorite braids, I use them for every open show or parade I go to :)

LOVE those braids! That is really neat-looking. Would they work on a REALLY thick mane, though?

I would love to see some pics, and some tips on how to get them looking really good.

Well, I always do them while they are wet, and I use string AND bands. Once you are finished, gel them down to keep the fly-aways down. My horse that I do them on the most has an insanely thin mane, so I make like 30 braids, then every braid I do, I attach it to the braid 3 braids to the left, instead of the one right next to it. I'll try to get some pictures up soon!

The braids look great on your horse! Maybe I'll try it sometime.
