I don't see why any of you are so worried about forelocks - I never cut into the forelock, only the mane.
I know, right? I run my clipper straight forward off the top of my horse's head/poll and they always have a nice sized forelock left. Depending on the thickness, I might stop just in front er...behind of the ear set; not sure if that made anysense...suppose illustrations would make more sense...Lol!
