Pretty, EASY braid for THICK tails...

I do this to my friesian's tail when I feel like braiding it but don't want to spend the whole afternoon doing something really fancy.

I dunno if you want to braid the whole thing or not, but this is what I usually do to the mustang I take care of (actually now I do it a little different, I just braid the top part and let the rest hang loose).

I figured it out on my own somehow (i'm usuall horible with braids), but here's a video I found with a demonstration :)
of course he does his a little different-his is fancier haha, i'm too lazy to do it his way :p

I do this one too. It's a very nice one if you don't want to braid the whole tail But it takes some practising.

Ohh I found a photo too. This was the first time I tried it (I invented it out of boredom) and I was so happy with the outcome that I made a quick photo with my phone. It looks funny but the more you practise the better the result is

I saw the braid in a native american horsemanship book. They didnt tell you how to do it, but in one of the pictures the horse had it and I liked it :) so I figured out how to do it and do it ALL the time lol. The picture I showed was the first time I figured it out

When I was younger I had a friend and she was a hairdresser. She used to do it on people all the time (it was a very popular hairstyle back then) and I was always so frustrated cause anytime I tried I just simply could.not. Do it. Once I figured it out but it was just a mess to me, I had my hands full of strands of hair I had no clue what to do with. Then I forgot how to do it again... Now I'm very comfortable with doing it on a horse's tail but somehow I'm sure if I were to do it on somebody's head I'd totally not know what to do again

Now... talk about skill and patience!
