I roached his mane because it was a thick, knotted, tangled, disgusting mess and we needed a "do-over." I had to use scissors because no matter how hard or many different approaches I've tried, he absolutely will not tolerate clippers. It really didn't look too awful. That was back in May. His mane is now about the length a WP horse's mane would be.

I "discovered" this way due to a lessee who cut my TB's nearly 2' mane and miserably failed. It was the only way to fix it. I have to admit, it looked rather good lol. You need thinning shears, tho. Cut so it just starts to fall over and then thin it out. It will create a nice arched top line and make his neck look thicker and arched, and his head will be more proportionate. It does look quite sharp, especially on a young man.
