Need advice about braiding!
 
I'm button braiding my friend's mare for a big show in 2 weeks, and then another horse in 3 weeks. I've been practicing alot with bands. But I'm going to sew the braids. Any advice about what thread to use? I don't have time to order special plaiting thread...so I need a quick and cheap idea! Thanks! :)

Yep! Are you going? I'm not riding in it...But I'm going with my 2 friends cause I'm their braider.

And I tried using yarn tonight, worked great! Thanks guys!

Make sure the yarn doesn't match too well, just a bit off. Otherwise, you'll cut out half the mane looking for it!
