When I bought him last April, his mane had been chopped to about 6-8 inches long.
He grew it out nicely all summer, but come winter he had rubbed off the last 10-12 inches of it.(yes...i know he was c-h-u-n-k-y!)
Then this spring/summer it grew back quickly and quite nicely....until I pulled him yesterday to trim his hooves....
.....so I got to thinking, could I just *gasp* cut it off?! He would look something like this ( his mane is on the other side )....I was thinking of keeping it an inch or two long, what do you think? And if I did, should I keep the forelock?
