Sparkles and Braiding and Feathers, Oh MY!

So I am always looking for new ideas on how to braid my horses hair or do anything fun and creative with his looks. Could you guys post some pictures of anything funky or creative you've done with your horses mane or tail or even his coat? I would love to get some new ideas or maybe learn some new braiding techniques. Thanks!
~Kayla

PS. I posted this thread in the grooming section but I thought maybe it would fit better in here.

This is the classic french braid done on my sister's horse, Willie.



This is the regular french braid where you cross sections over each other. If you do it upside down (cross the sections under), the braid stands out more. I like it better upside down but I do not have any pictures of his hair like that.

Here is an interesting web page I stumbled across that shows quite a few different types of braids: Show Horses and their Beautiful Mane Braids

Well, it's not a braid, but it's a fun thing I like to do to my boy. I've actually gotten quite a few compliments on it though. 23104_100000781994714_9472_n.jpg

Thanx. I've only done the peace sign. I use those little pocket clippers. It can be a little tricky! As you can see, it's not perfect.

Woah! I was actually thinking about doing the same thing! Was it hard? Did you just use a stencil and clippers?


Oops sorry I didn't see your last post. Wow! Just clippers? I would have to use a stencil or something lol.

Thankyou. Like I said, it can be tricky. I think because it's round & the blade is square. No stincil. Couldn't find one. It would probably be pretty easy if I had a stincil, but that's just pocket clippers, freehand.
