I used the clear bands on my dun.....that is until I roached her mane....now I maintain it at a nice short mohawk. I love how from the top it is dark on the edges and light in the middle. But then again she is not showing and is a trail horse now.

I really like the idea of clipping some mane and taking it to the yarn store to match the color....wish I would have thought to do that. I used to use a burnt reddish-orangeish yarn. It worked well enough.

The love for a horse is just as complicated as the love for another human being...If you never love a horse, you will never understand.

I second the clear bands like DA posted, that's what I have for the exceptionally rare occasion that I actually braid a mane/tail.

Best part? You can generally find them at wal-mart and dollar stores nationwide. You don't have to specifically order them from a horse supply store or look for them at tack shops.
