My horse has a new 'do!

Panama's mane has been flopping over onto the wrong side a lot lately. I think the wind has been blowing it over, but it seems to be training itself to go both ways now, and it's annoying me. So I decided to put his mane in loose braids to retrain it back the way it should go.

I think he looks pretty cute like this, don't you? I just wish his mane would grow longer — they are such short little braids!

I had another very productive and satisfying day. Stay tuned for a post on all our accomplishments today!

Ahhhhh, what a handsome boy he is!!! I like to braid Gilly's mane in a long rope braid to his withers. I haven't tried the small braided knots yet.

Jane, I haven't done the small braided knots, either. This was my first time braiding his mane, though I have French braided his tail before.

Do you do a French braid down Gilly's mane? I'd love to see a picture, if you have one, as I'm not sure what you mean.
