She looks great :) I'm a fan of pulled manes.
Although it looks longer near her poll than it does by her withers.

ok, this will be dumb question, but when you say mane pulled how is that done? I've heared the term a thousand times but have never seen it done.

Well theres 2 different ways that I learned..

One [the way I did it] Take the razer blade like on the clippers[take it OFF the clippers!], take a small section, and just run it kinda up and down just to the length you want. So it cuts it basically, but gives it that more natural look, rather then a straight edge. Its hard to explain.

Then the second way, is to literally take hairs like from under neath and pull them out with a pulling comb.


The way I did it, you don't actaully pull it out of the root. And it doesnt thin it out.

I think it looks a ton better; much neater. :) Good job!

Success comes a [bit] at a time.

Wait, so it went from being long to short? I like longish manes and tails. They are pretty =] Of course my appys don't have long manes anyway but, xD They both look good, regardless.

Lol yeah. Chance is tb/arab/appy. Mother is TB Father is 1/2 Arab 1/2 Appy.

I love long manes but I felt that it was just making her neck look thin, and I want to show her so :) and she has a nice neck I want to show off :P

Looks great!

I just pulled my girl's, except I think I'll use the mane puller next time... she's got such fine mane and tail that I don't want to thin it out too much....
