I made 9 individual braids then braided three braids out of the 9 braids. them braided those together, and i tied up all of teh ends.

Congrats on getting it out :). Thumper is part miniature horse, so he has an extra thick mane that gets tangled ALL the time! It can be so frustrating :).

Glad you got the knot out. For the future, a friend of mine suggested mineral oil (or baby oil, it's the same thing, just with a fragrance added) which is pretty cheap.

I was normal...then I got a horse.
