Re: [RC] braids - heidi larson

when I rode my other horse with a thinner, shorter mane, I rarely braided.  My 
current horse has a super long and pretty thick mane so I braid, for heat and 
because if I don't braid it gets under the edge of my saddle and gets 
pulled/broken.  I also have a tendancy to pick up some mane hair when I shorten 
my reins.  For fun though I do switch it up and do fat braids, lots of thinner 
braids, lattice work type, etc!  Hey, I might as well enjoy all that hair since 
it is alot of work!

This may be silly and I stand at the ready to have my chain
yanked and leg pulled. I note at several of the rides?I
have attended about half of the horses will have their manes
braided. I have a black and white paint that puts on a
pretty thick winter coat. I?am not able to blanket him/pull
blanket off so I don't shave him. Do the braids actually
help the horse cool or are they strictly for looks? By the
way,? he looks pretty darn good with a set of braids!
As for me and my horse, we shall serve the Lord.
