cut mane off all together?

My gelding has rubbed his mane off from sticking his head in fences too much. He had a small patch of hair by the poll so I cut that off because it looked ridiculous and now he basically just has his forelock and half a mane... do you think I should just cut it off? It WAS long and pretty and I wish he hadn't rubbed it off but now it looks funny. What do you think?

If you do roach just make sure to leave the forelock...Yes I have seen people take it all and it looks really bad.

I posted this picture of a roached mane on another thread. I think it looks really nice. Something to think about

Yeah I would definitely roach, but yes be sure to leave the forlock. Tana doesn't grow onw, well very little anyways, and her few strands look pretty darn stupid!

I'd go with roaching it!
He's already got it started for you =)

But yes, leave the forelock. You never really want to mess with the forelock when roaching. At least, we never have.

He's cute!

My show gelding does that. I didn't roach his mane. And I regret it to this day, he had an amazing mane, now its all choppy and nasty.
