~braiding duke's mane and tail~

I have been working on braiding duke's mane and tail for a long time now. I just recently learned how to do the hunter braids and well, duke lost part of his mane so I could only do what is left. I decided to start doing the hunter braids when I ride so his hair that is missing isnt that noticeable.. tell me what you think of the braids.. the pics go in order, like the first pic is from a year or two ago, then the ones near the end are from last weekend.. duke is my great horsey that is so very patient with me.. I am no professional but I do want to be one at braiding and tell me if you see something you like or if you see something I can fix. Thanks for the help!

They look good especially the tail ones I wish I could do them :(
The only thing I would say is wet down the mane when you do the plait so it doesn't look fluffy and when you roll/fold try and get them pointing to the side or down :) I hope that made sense!

Looks good! I tried plaiting/braiding my mare the other day... I'm fine with tails but with manes I need the practise ;)
Not to sound negative, but I thought plaits are meant to be on the right side, not the left? When out showing I mean. Other than that I think they're awesome!

Looks good :)
Just an advice when you take photos tho; don't have the camera so close. It's better to get a sharp image ad crop it, than try to fix a blurry close up :P
