Here it is..and I admit I know it looks bad! You have no idea how bad I want to brush her, but I have to admit it is already starting to take a corded look!
Hubby says that is exactly what dreads should look like, hers are looking better then his did when he first started out!
Not sure how long before they really will start curling and cording, but you can see what I mean by her coat naturally cording up. Her top knot is about 4-5 inches long, her body hair maybe 2-3 and I recently shaved her rear down with a 1/2 in guard so I am guessing 1 inch long at most. I have been pulling them apart into smaller sections if it starts to look like a big mat, like the size of a small pen in width.
I will keep the shortest part of her NOT corded, since I think that they would get dirty on her rear...and of course her feet and face will be kept short. Its too cold to shave anyone too close in our winter weather so she is a bit furry faced!
