Hi, I have a show coming up!
A little background on my horse- he recently decided it would be a nice idea to rub off his mane on tree, so the entire wither area where part of his mane used to fall was one of two strands of hair, that I pulled out.
Well, his entire mane began looking like a mess, so I cut it into a medium length arched Mohawk [Short where he rubbed, increasing in height towards the middle, then decreasing again towards the bridle path]
I though it looked pretty cool, but my mom nearly flipped a cow when she saw it [she's into long flowing manes..] and told me not to cut it anymore. So it's been growing out for around a month.
Problem. Part of it's long, part of it's short, part of it falls down to the side some, part of it stands up. I know some parts are long enough to braid for the upcoming show, but where he rubbed at the withers, it's only about an inch long.
So my questions are what can I do with it? Should I braid the parts I can and leave the withers area alone? Should I chop it back into a Mohawk? I wish I had a great picture but I don't, this is all I have:
