Apparently manes are supposed to fall to the right side, not the left. Who knew! No seriously- who knew this?
Every time I lesson with Kelly she makes the comment that "we" need to braid Ellie's mane over. Who is this "we?" So for some reason I chose the most humid evening to go stand on a stool over a fidgeting horse and attempt to braid a mane that is far bushier than I ever realized.
The result? Biggest braids. Ever.
