Yep, you can. YOu can do alot with pulling

If you know how you can:
Thin a thick, short mane without losing the length
Shorten a long thin mane without losing what thickness you do have
Shorten and thin a long, thick mane.

Hmmm, interesting. Thanks a lot. Any videos you would recommend that show you how to do all that? I would like to get a general idea of the art of pulling. :P

I agree. I was under the belief his mane couldn't be pulled due to the length. Any chance of someone being able to show how to do this with a long mane? All the videos I've seen are of like 5 inch long manes.

I can't find one with a long mane and I don't have a pony that I'm willing to take the mane off to show you.

The vet I used said pulling mane DOES hurt some horses (I specifically asked about it). So I'm not positive pain can be considered as a "training process".

That device is pretty much an oddly shaped pair of pliers.
No I wouldnt use it as Ilike being able to feel what I am doing.

If you get sore fingers when pulling you need to either wear latex/surgical gloves or coat your fingers in plasters.
