Banded and braided manes

Over the weekend, I banded Vega's mane and did a diamond braid in Gem's mane.

Vega also fell asleep in the cross ties

Gem's diamond braid.. took me maybe an hour to do

Vega's banded mane.. took me.. i'm going to say 2 1/2 hours to complete it. It is not completed in the pictures.. I needed to take a break because my fingers and arms were killing me

And now pics of her hanging lip and her falling asleep on the cross ties

Oh! I did the dimond braid on a pony once because her mane was long, tangled and was in some serious need of some TLC!

But it didnt look as good as this one :)

I love the first picture. I have seen it done before but never thought of using it for training the main. How neat. You're a perfectionist my dear

The diamond braid was not done to train Gem's mane.. it already stays down on that side. I thought it looked really cool on a website I saw, so I decided, since he has the length, to do it.

Vega's mane, after putting a sleezy hood on it, has been doing really well. I figure i'll braid it in a few days to really help it stay down.

The diamond braid is really easy to do too. If anyone wants to know, let me know :)
