    TB's with pony forelocks?

    Usually when I think of TB's forelocks I think of medium length, thin and fine, but I bought one a few months ago and he has an long, very thick one (Picture above, but I'm not sure how clear it is). I was just wondering if that was common in the breed and where it might have come from. Also, I'm curious to know what others think of longer, fluffier forelocks.

    Yeah, a little bit of a stupid question, but I'm curious.

    Oh my god, you have the cutest horse.
    But yeah, good question. I've seen some TB's with different builds with thicker forelocks, but then the more racing TB's with thin forelocks.
    I'm stalking this thread.

    My gelding was raced at least once, he is tattooed. My unraced TB mare has a thin forelock.

    I think it just depends on its sire or dam because I've seen both thick and skinny

    My 2 thoroughbreds have thin forelocks. I have never really seen a thoroughbred with a thick forelock.

    My old purebred (reg'd) TB mare (pictured left) had a fairly thick forelock, and her mane was very thick. It just depends on the genetics of the horse... just like people.. hair thickness can vary no matter what race you are.

    Edit.. I just realized the picture doesn't show her forelock, it's in a braid haha so you'll just have to take my word for it.

    Cute horse by the by :)

    Well, I took a few today, but he was really dirty. Only face shots because he has pretty awful conformation, but you can see his forelock better
