Photo Challenge: 25 Fabulous Mane Jobs

Show season is in full swing, and so are the fabulous manes!

Well, the next time I want my horse braided, banded or mane rolled, I think I’ll just put a call out to our readers, because Horse Nation certainly has some talented grooms out there (or at least they know where to hire one!).

Well, for the most part. There was this one:

Okay, she gets a blue ribbon just for patience.
