I have never really paid much attention to it, but in the modern pleasure do you shave off the forelock and braid, like you do the moderns???
Yup..... if you choose to leave the forelock (read as tiny tuft of hair) and braid the ribbon into it, the basic idea is to leave as small a piece as possible because when you braid the ribbon into it you don't want to be able to see the hair at all. You also want to leave it hair pretty far back- like at the highest part of the poll, because you need to leave the little tuft of ribbon sticking up that you cut into the M shape.Erica said:So if you leave some forelock are you able to just take a tiny peice of forelock and then again on the mane and braid the "ribbons"("braid") into the tiny piece of hair.
I know the answer to this one!!willowoodstables said:Even worse though is having a Cob-tail pony LOL that wears 65-70 little bitty red wool braids down the neck! First mane of the year my fingers CRAMP sooooo bad. Mind U at the price I get paid to braid I put up with it LOL!
