Summer here in South Carolina is brutal, especially with the bugs. My gelding Cender gets eaten alive by the bugs, so he must wear a fly sheet, which is rather hot. I was wondering if anyone has used the Spanish braid to tidy up a VERY long and thick mane to make him cooler. I know they use the Spanish braid on the Baroque horses (which I just learned, the PP is).
Does this sound like a good idea?
