Interesting word - don't you love computers/phones and either auto-correct or hitting the wrong keys   ;)  ?

I have the 1st one almost done.  It's 4 strands - 2 aloha; 2 lavender.  It's very small in diameter, though, since the multicolored cord for some reason is smaller than the regular solid colors. 







I'm going to find sizing for 6 & 8 strand braided lead rope as I'm out of practice figuring amounts for lengths.  Then will braid one or the other in 10' length to see if I like it better.  8 strand will be round, like 4 strand; 6 strand would be flat on one side and 1/2 round or maybe can do full round - depends on pattern of braiding.

Here is the first finished lead rope in these colors.  It's a little over 10' in length.  The loop is to attach a snap of choice.  The knot on the end is a simple overhand knot (didn't do a Turk's Head yet).

Thanks All! 

I've been working on the 6 strand one - also making it completely round.  I'd forgotten what it was like to braid it this way - woof, my hands are raw from doing this one.  Hasn't helped - I've undone and redone the top part (about 10") with the loop 3 other times.  This time, the 4th, seems to be the charm.  I'd done 2 strands of each color and was having a problem w/ the 2 blacks.  Finally changed it to 2 of the Aloha & 1 black then 2 lavender & 1 white.  Makes is so much easier to recognize what goes where - when.  Haven't taken any pics of it yet, will do that later this week... 

I'm still having some problems with keeping the tension right on this type of braid, so it is twisting somewhat (the color is shifting around).  While it's not a big problem, and most would never know, since I know about it, I don't like it.  It's just short of driving me crazy!  But this too, shall pass, LOL.

Hey Bliss, how are you growing? Able to get out much? Or is winter causing mischievous minds to meddle where they shouldn't?

She is a little naughty, she manages to get into the round bale feeder, but can't seem to figure out how to get out, so I have to help her out.   One of these days, she'll no longer fit through the slots (she only fits the 3 slots where the pieces connect together).

Happy New Year Bliss! I bet she thinks she's a grown up mare now that she's a yearling. Will be interesting to hear about herd dynamics now that Tana and Bonnie are back. Does the snow make it easier for her to get into the hayrings? Do y'all have snow paths constructed? How are the cattle?

We only have maybe four inches on the flat, only where it's blown and drifted is it very deep (so far just a corner of the gelding pen, and the back gate in Topper's pen are getting deep).
Bonny and Tana were only one pen over, so no excitement to speak of, but the are happy to be back in the big paddock.
Cows are doing what they do best... eating.
