braiding the mane
How do you braid a horse's mane like this:

I don't know what it's called, but I really want to know how to do it! Sorry for the bad picture quality; I scanned it! Please tell me if you know!

You have to know how to French braid and when you learn that you just do it down their neck.

okay...i disn't know that's what you're supposed to didn't look liek a french braid...

Well you know what, you may be right the may not be a French braid. I just took a quick glance, I'm sorry.

heres a website that will show you how to do it
its called a running braid
ive done it on my horse and its pretty easy

I think it is an underhanded french braid. Just do a french braid but instead of going over the top go under. When done this way more of the "braid" shows. Kinda hard to explain hope that makes sense.

so it is prectically a frech braid Lokibusterlover? i'm going to try that this weekend!

I tried that! It is easy to do...but hard to do it the RIGHT way! haha I can do a loose one, but those tight ones get me! And they never stay in for long, gr.

I better example on how to do a running braid. If you do it underhand like Vidaloco said it really makes the actual braided portion stand out nicer. I disagree with how she ended her's though. I either finish it like I would for a typical button braid, or I thread the whole end braided section up behind the french braided portion...not just sewn into the front.
