At any rate, her mane is an awkward length. When I got her last June I trimmed it short to even it up because she had rubbed out the lower-middle part of it (or maybe one of the other mares ate it, I don't know). It was a good short length last year to do the hunter braids in. But, let's face it, I'm a sucker for long flowy, beautiful manes. Griffin has the thinnest mane EVER, but its long and working its way towards flowy. Q's is growing - its twice the length (easily) that it was in June last year.
Its an awkward length. Too long for hunter braids. Too short for a running braid.

Exploration into the world of other braids. My favorite option and planned braid for 2013, scalloped braids.

Eh, eh, eh?
I'm a fan. Even if this attempt wasn't formal and looks rather sad.
|But not as sad as Griffin's piddly little neck.|
|Hey! It may be piddly but its flexible!|
And yes, yes, yes, I know some will grumble about a long mane and the many tedious things that come with it and also how it can make a horse "too hot". *rolls eyes* To this I say bologna. And I also say, I LOVE BRAIDING! Its fun. And once Q's mane is long I'll just throw in a running braid if she's "too hot".
What say you? Any other ideas to throw my way?
