If I am reading this correctly, what your saying is that if you wrap your horses braids as this OP has done with her horse, the hair will break off from it?

You learn something new every day...

Sure. Maybe if you put it in, and leave it for a month.

People wouldn't sell 50 dollar "mane bags" for Friesians if it broke off the mane.

I will take the braids out every three days. Let it breathe. Then massage the oil back into the hair and braid it back up. At least twice a week.

Thank you for clearing that up. In all the years I've never seen anybody do this. I've seen it done with tails, but not manes. Very good idea.

Thanks!
