Is that him in your avatar photo???

I don't know what to suggest other than MTG. Maybe not combing it as much to avoid breakage???

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

May sound odd - but what is his feeding situation? We've had horses thin their own forelocks by "attacking" the round bales when they eat!

Not odd at all mls, now that you mention it, I had a horse that would rub the top of his head on the round bales.

Haha that is so true- they tend to do that! But maybe a bit of MTG?

Ride more, worry less.

Yea Dumas that's him in the avatar.

He use to have a really long mane and when cute it I saved it. I'm thinking about making an extension with it lol! Does any one use those?

He doesn't get a whole round bale so I don't know. Never seen him attacking his hay lol!
