Exclamation *roach mane?*

How long would it take if I roached my geldings mane to be like a finger's length? Please let me know-thanks! (:

It takes my mare's mane about a month to reach the length of my fingers. However, I have ridiculously tiny hands...

Hehe okay! Thanks! That's pretty much what I've been told! (:

In my experience, it varies by horse just like it does with people. Some horses will grow the roach back out to a useable length in just a few weeks and others take months to get just a few inches.

It all depends on the horse. My previous horse's mane would be a reasonable length around the two week mark. My current horse on the other hand takes a good month and a half.

The day after I roached it:

Seven and a half weeks later:

This is how I keep it (it got this long after about four months):

I trim it every few weeks to keep it nice and even on the top.
