Oh I agree. The longest I like is a little past their neck... like what would look good on a Friesian or Andalusian... never that long.

I'd roach and use MTG everyday, like FGR said.

Working on that with my stallion because the nerd brain did the same thing. :p

Yeah, I would have done the same, can't wait to see the pictures tho!

Oh and Dumas Grrrl: My trainer just rescued a horse named Dumas and I've heard she's got weight on him and he's a wonderful horse... :) Made me think of you.

Sorry to get off topic.

Well it decided to be freezing and rainy out today so I probably won't get the pictures today... keep in mind that there are no outlets by where I groom him so I had to cut it off with these really really cheap scissors that don't even really work... so it's a little funny looking right now until I get it cleaned up

Will have pics tomorrow

I love it when manes are roached. So much of it is gone, I would cut the rest off and let it regrow all even again

That's ok that you did it with scissors... I will have to do the same. My horses would flat out ding-dong-ditch me if I pulled out a pair of electric clippers.

Sorry your weather is so crappy. I hope it warms up and the sun comes out for you!
