Senior Pictures with a horse. Feathers in the mane?

My mother is forcing me to take senior pictures , but at least she is letting me take some with my instructors horse. (Along with 5 bazillion other poses :roll:)

So yesterday I went out and bought a a shirt to match my dark blue saddle pad and halter. While I was out (And dangerously sidetracked from the reason I was shopping...curse you sale bins!) I bought some fake feathers at JoAnn Fabrics.
I think they would make Annie look like an Indian pony, and make for interesting pictures. The only thing is, how do I get them to stay in her mane? I have a time restriction for my photos, so the process needs to be quick, and removal has to be easy too. I thought about just attaching them with braiding rubber bands, but would that be too noticeable?

Thanks in advance!

I think rubber bands would work. Alternatively, how about those little paper clamp type things (small ones)?

Try bobby pins

Your horse is an extension of you.

before your shoot you can always glue them to something that you can attach them with, clips, sticky side of velcro, etc. If you look in the hair section at target or walmart, you can sometimes find teeny teeny clips that would probably not be noticeable and go in/out super fast.

Thanks guys

I'll try to get out to the pasture tomorrow and try out the binder clips. If they don't work out, I'll take Cinny's route and try looking for stuff at Wal-Mart

go to a beauty supply store ( like sallys) and get hair glue. The latex kind . Super easy to use and comes out super easy. I do a lot of hair extensions :) . Any questions shoot me a message.

Dental floss! We did that to an appy's mane out at the barn for pictures just the other day and it was super easy to braid (or tie) in and easy to take out.
