Question Foofy fluffy top knot thingy bob

Legacy's previous owner went a little clipper happy and clipped her bridle path a little too far forward. Now she has this fluffy little top knot thing and other than MTG I'm not sure how to get it to grow.

The reason I'm not too keen on using MTG is the smell makes me incredibly nauseated. Like keel over tummy turning nauseous. I'm trying my best to clean it and condition it regularly but she's a little iffy about water between her ears so it's more of a spray and hope I got it all deal. Haha.

I've only had her 3 weeks so that's not a lot of time for it to grow but other than MTG is there any way to speed it up? I'd like to be able to at least french braid it into the rest of her forelock for shows so she doesn't have this foofy thing sitting on her head.

Here's a fro thing. When it grows out she'll have a beautiful and thick mostly white with mixed black. I'm impatient... I want it to be like that now but I know I'll have to work on it and wait. -)

Just let it grow out as annoyed as you are. If your not showing her or anything, just let it grow out. I let the bridle path on my girls grow during the winter. Does the same poof poof and looks dorky but I would rather leave it than cut it and have exposure up there. Legacy will just be part indian for awhile! :)

One of my geldings got into some burrs right before I was supposed to pick him up. Breeder left his mane & tail but evidently the forelock was pretty bad up so they whacked it off. When I got there to load up, here was this yearling with a fanned up poof standing between his ears. Chronically looked like he had stuck his hoof in the electric outlet. One year'd never know it had happened.

I'd keep a good organic conditioner in it and wait :) but I just had to say I LOVE HER!!! She has the most expressive face!

Im not sure you can make it grow back any faster with any product. I Think you'll just have to wait it out. Right now it appears like its the worst stage. Soon it will at least lay down flat. She's a beauty!

All I need is it to lie down flat by May. Rated shows start in may and I need to be able to at least band if not French braid her forelock.
I'm hoping with her vanner traits that it will get another inch or two by then.

I did the same thing to Annalie. I thought she was pulling her mane out on the fence (which she was) but I had actually cut her bridle path, stupid me. I have it up in a knot right now so that she can't pull anymore out in the fence. I've been putting mane and tail in it. But other than that I don't think there is anything I can do about it. : / Wish they had fetlock extensions for a horse's mane.

I think they do but they look silly. We tried something on a lesson horse and it was funny looking. Im not sure if it was a forelock extention or something home made but it was funky.

No advice, just love your title.

Definitely MTG, but also try Eqyss Mega Tek rebuilder. I've had a lot of success using that. Also great for helping hair grow back over wounds and stuff. Used it for years, and love it, though it is on the expensive side. Here in Southern Cali, its like $24 a bottle. Good luck. She's very pretty.
