Keeping Braids In Over Night??
I was just thinking... since I am going to braid Jeffrey's mane and tail for shows this year I was wondering if you had any ideas on how to keep braids looking as perfect or close to perfect as you can over night since I dont have time in the morning to braid. let me know how you do it or how you have seen it done. it would be soo helpful! Thanks!!!
i usually use one of those lycra hoods. skinny hoods!!!! thats the name i was lookin for :) if you can keep him stalled the night before that will help too. but nothing is guaranteed :) some horses will get them out no matter what you do :P
yup, i've heard that those hoods work.
this website has alot of that stuff:
very bright though!
this one would probably be the one to get:
Hey jazzyrider and Grendel thanks for the reply. If i were to get one of those hoods should i get one with a zipper? haha im so stupid. no one uses these at my barn so im not sure. umm so just let me know. thanks again!
I would not suggest tight braids being kept overnight. But if that's what you would like to do go for it. lol. I tried a lycra hood and didn't like it very much. They rub a lot and caused a lot of my last Appy's hair to be rubbed off, however, it did an almost fantastic job on the mane staying down. (he had a mohawk) 8)
sometimes it's hard to keep them perfect, but it's probaly easier to do it in the morning.
it all kind of depends on your horse -- if he'd be irrated with them and rub them off. is he in a turnout or stall at night?
umm it depends if he is turned out or stalled becuase last year i bathed and braided his tail in the morning before the show but if i have to do all that and braid his mane in the morning i might have to wake up at 3 in the morning haha. so i guess ill just have to try it. thanks for all the replys
If you know someone who has it, i would suggest borrowing it for a day to see if it rubs your horse. Since it will only be kept in overnight, i can't see it rubbing too much, but i do not know.
thanks applylover. that helped alot and answered my question. i am def. gonna see if anyone has one that i can borrow. thanks again!
