Yep, I'm in the leave it long and pretty camp, too. I would never even think about cutting or pulling a forelock. The girl leasing my mare took some scissors to her forelock and tail last year without my permission and I flipped out a bit lol. She has now been told that is forbidden, mane is the only thing she can mess with for shows, forelock is to be braided or banded. My poor girl had some bad bangs for awhile, but it's finally all better now lol I hate straight across, blunt cut forelocks with a passion.
