Zelda gets a hair cut

Zelda's Before Mane
Zelda in her before state. Her mane is so thick that it was hanging down on both sides.

It was time for Zelda to get a beauty treatment. She’s a pretty girl but the unkempt look wasn’t showing her best side.

I love my thinning comb. In just a few minutes Zelda went from shaggy to chic. It’s amazing how much easier this than using the traditional “pulling” technique.

Here’s the handful of hair that came off her mane.

I ended up with a good handful of mane. I’m sorry that the birds are no longer building their nests because this would be primo nesting material. There’s a cozy layer of horse hair in most of the nests that line our barns.

If I were planning to braid her mane I’d have to thin it too as she has the thickest mane I’ve seen in a long time. But this is a good start — it shows off her neck and makes her look so much more put together!
