I wanted to roach it mostly because it gets SO HOT HERE! He had a LOAD of mane, and it looked uncomfortable laying on his neck all through the heat of summer. Plus I wanted something new. Do you like the look of a hogged mane or roached mane better?

Okay well I like how it looks on your horse :) where abouts do you live and how hot does it get, if you don't mind me asking?
Roaching and hogging would never look good on my horse, he has a horrible mane.
Probably roached, I don't really like the look of a hogged mane, It makes them look weird... :)

I really want to roach both our bigger horses in the winter so by spring they'll have a mini mane again...right now they've really been rough to the mane as in half of it is already roached because of rubbing etc.

Here are the horses tell me what you think of them getting their manes roached!

Its fine :) We live in Arkansas, and it gets about 112*F here... Its way, way, way to hot... -.- Yeah, a hogged mane can look weird :L And, oh my god, when I first roached Rustys mane, jumping was... hell! I was so used to using a little bit of mane, that when I had no mane left to jump with, it totally screwed me up :P Do you have any pictures of your horse(s), if its okay? :)

Personally, if my horse had his mane rubbed out, I would defiantly roach it, so it could start growing out even :) Beautiful horses :) I would say go for it, cut that mane off

Yeah it gets about the same here in the middle of summer, but my horse doesn't have a thick mane or tail.
I bet that must of been weird, I always hang onto a bit of mane when I jump as well ;)
I can put a photo of him up, but its not a very good picture of him though. I just gotta get a chance to get onto the computer :)

Ughh, sooo hot here... And, DRY. DRY. DRY. We are supposed to get major rain, and wind from the hurricane that is sweeping along the shores, so no riding for a few days :( Yeah, the first few times I jumped without a mane, I would be all calm riding up to the jump, then at takeoff I would freak, and lunge forward, grasping my hands under his neck xD I got out of doing that, and only do it now when he over jumps a lot... its emberessing... xD

Okay, Ill look forward to the picture! Im sure its fine :)

That sucks, I don't like it to much when its summer here, last summer wasn't to bad though.
Sounds like you had a bit of fun jumping then :P Sometimes when I jump I would be all good then I ask my horse to soon and I end up totally failing that jump :P
For some reason I can't get the photos to work?? Like I can't put them up on here??
