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 :lol:


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

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:D

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 :)
