As I mentioned in yesterday's post, I roached manes Sunday afternoon. I don't think they've been done since last May, when I roached the girls at the beginning of the month to prep for that photoshoot. If it were a "normal" year where we were out and about more or god forbid, showing (HAHAHA), I would have done a lot more trimming throughout the year to keep them at an optimum length, but I sort of opted for benign neglect last year and it was fine. But I was finally tired of not having bridle paths and having to look at them, so off the hair went!
|Started with Cinna.
|She was upset about Jack calling to her so she had balled up and gotten as tall as possible, so DH was helping, ha.
|Ruby is old hat at this by now.
|First DH tried to just cut out the dreadlocks and leave his mane short.
|He ended up looking like a kid with the worst bowl cut imaginable, so off the rest came.
|DH isn't thrilled with the look but I reminded him by next spring it will probably be grown out to the length he was aiming for anyway. It's hair. It grows. Don't sweat it.
|The birds were REALLY HAPPY with the hair scraps I tossed outside for them to build their nests!
|You got to see better photos of Ruby and Trigger's new 'dos in yesterday's post, so here is a screenshot of Cinna rocking her roach :)
