    Grooming day.

    Before. He never really LOOKS dirty, but ohhh he is.








    First up his mane. I decided to do something I've never done before. I want his mane to grow long. We recently had an incident with a running braid and him RUBBING on it, and rubbed off a chunk of his mane. So I'm trying a Friesian mane growing trick. If it works for them maybe it'll work for Ethan.

    Anyhow, I also did something I never thought I'd do. I cut a bridle path. I never "got" the point. It always seemed like it didn't matter. Then again I'd only seen photos and of course no one cuts bridle paths on Friesians. ;) SO I did it, and you know what? I like it. It looks so much cleaner.

    Before.


    After cutting the path. I've never done it before. I don't think I did too bad.



    He was so sleepy by the time I was done cutting.



    Now after I massaged some special sauce into his mane and into the roots. He LOVED the massage.


    Put some nice even braids in.


    Then I wrapped them.


    Pink of course.

    Then I parted his forlock down the middle on accident and loled. He's Dr. Spock.






    His tail touches the ground, he's got such a fabulous tail. I wish he had some mane and forelock too. He's look great with thick eye length forelock darn it.

    Hah, he looks so funky with those pink wraps & braids. Good luck with the mane. Your bridle path looks good too!

    Oh, do share how the mane trick worked. I'd really like to see. I'm also growing Java's out. It was pulled and very short due to halter classes before. I want it LONG now!

    I'd like to know the "ancient Chinese secret" too! My Mustang's tail is thick & touches the ground, too, but his mane is so thick...it seems like it's not growing long.

    Unfortunatley the mane will break off above the wrap from the stress of the braid/wrap weight.
