    Another "Should I Roach?" Thread

    I apologize for this topic because I know there are already a few like it, but I'm looking for opinions.

    I am wanting to roach Nav's mane. He has a thick mane but it's usually pretty uneven and scraggly. I prefer the look of a roached mane and don't mind the silly mohawk look when it grows out (at least on other horses that I've seen).

    Can I get a few opinions?

    Hair grows back. You can roach it and see if you like it and if not let it grow back out. Roaching it will definitely show off his nice neck.

    Yes yes yes yes! I love roaching. When I get back into horses I can't wait to roach my first mane! Especially a horse with an exceptional neck

    On him, I would! He has such a pretty, thick neck so it would look quite dashing on him.

    He is built to carry of the roached look, I would do it, and post pics for everyone to admire

    Wow, thanks all! I went ahead and did it tonight while I was out at the barn.

    It's not perfect by any means, had to use scissors, but I think he looks quite good. I'll see about getting some pictures tomorrow. :)

    He's a doll! I think he could rock just about any look you chose ;D

    Alright, I finally got around to taking some pictures of him with the new doo. :) I apologize if they're a little big... It's grown out a bit by now and looks really good, I like it more than I thought I would!
