Hi there, my horse needs his mane cut as he can't see because there is hair all over his face. Am I able to use normal household scissors to cut it? If so is there a special method of cutting it? Thanks, technopony13

1. Short answer to the scissor question. Yes, pretty much any scissors will cut your horse's hair. I cut mine's hair with the same scissors I cut paper with and use the same shears that are used to cut my or children's hair. It's not rocket science .
2. He can see. Trust me. He can't have any more hair in his face than my older mare and she see's just fine. She still spots things before I do. It's a "people" thing. Like thinking that and English Sheepdog can't see with all the hair in it's face (and it's ALWAYS in it's face since that's how it grows). It's like we think that because we feel the cold that we our horse(s) need a blanket (they don't, it's a "people" thing...they're better off without them, but that's a different topic). If "you" feel the need to cut the hair then do it, but horse doesn't care. And more hair does help cut down on surface area available for bugs to bother them on.
If any horse was going to have issues seeing through their hair it would be this mare (I shorten though....when it's getting past her nose ).
