Is there a way to grow the forelock out? My horse's is really small and I think if she had a longer one it would compliment her face. Thanks!

I wouldn't know how to grow it, but last year for a show my friend bought hair extentions for her horses mane.

Some horses naturally have shorter body hair than others. My QH Denny's forelock doesn't even reach between his eyes and his mane reaches at most 8 inches long whereas my mustangs have forelocks that cover their eyes and manes that are 1 foot + in length. You might try some growth stimulant like MTG or whatever that stuff is and keep it in a loose braid. Past that, I really have no suggestions. :)

Hmm not sure what that hair growth stuff is, maybe I'll try braiding it and see if it'll be able to grow out longer. I hope so cause its super short!

Braiding it wouldn't do anything without the MTG. You can find it at your local coap

they have mane socks! People put there horses tails in those sock things and it works, and they have mane socks. I also use some kind of human product and I don't remeber what it is called dang it.

Hmm mtg.. what does it look like?

Shapleys- here's the website for MTG.

My mare has a really short, dry, poofy forelock and I'm currently trying to keep it braided but I add conditioner everytime I do it to keep it moisturized. Braiding without product will actually help as it'll be less likely for the hair to splinter and break.

A bit MTG should work, but yeah, some horses just don't have long hair!

Ha; my older mare has the same problem. It looks like someone ripped the hairs out of a paint brush and glued them between her ears. I have come to accept it and still brush it fondly with the rest of her mane, but I've never been able to get it to grow back out.
