Lol, no specific reason...
I hogged my Walker mare's mane about two years ago, and loved it, so I really wanted to see how it looked on Dakota, so did his this year, and love it!
I used to be a fan of long manes and would almost never do anything to shorten a mane... but they were a hassle to keep tangle-free and good looking, so I've begun to lean towards the preference to short manes... right now, all three of my horses have short manes (one hogged, the other two pulled... though I let them grow out during winter).
