It hurts so bad!
Note to self: use gloves at least!

It looks way worse today then yesterday
Hoping it heals up fast cause I am grooming at a horse show all weekend and it will get super annoying if it doesn't heal up!

That's for sure! Whoo did that burn when I took my shower!!!
This mane was, still is insane! It's a shire/TB mare who has never had her mane pulled and it's in dreads and about 4 feet long and on both sides, and about a pillow size in thickness!
I got the one side taken care of yesterday and then looked down and was like oh that's not good!

I always wrap my fingers in black tape when I pull manes. Hate blisters...

I got those all over last spring when I did Molly's. I found it easier to use my hand than the comb, especially with a mare who would fling her head everywhere when she saw the comb coming, and didn't notice the giant blisters until I put her away. It hurts, that's for sure!

Ouch. That is why I like my horses. My haflinger is shown with a long natural mane and so is my mini.

If it makes you feel any better, my 3 yr old says I have "rock hands" from all my blisters calousing over:)

Ooh ouch! been there with manes! Why I invested 2 in a mane comb haha

My hands are gradually becoming as tough as my Dads-a joiner/labourer- and I have proper man shaped hands already good for gripping ropes and reins, not good when looking for pretty rings etc for prom!

Worst burn I got was from a nylon lunge line... 1" burn across my forefinger, 3" burn across palm couldn't hold a pen for like 3 days (difficult to explain at school why my writing suddenly turned all spidery) and never lunged without gloves since!!

If you need to protect it, put a normal plaster on it and cover it with duct tape/whatevers closest to hand. Just use 2 little strips each side of the joint so you still have movement :)

That happened to me too when I was using a cheaters comb to shorten Suzie's. All I can say is oww! And of course when it happened to me, it bled like the mississippi river and my trainer was having a heart attack!
