Shortyrider, it won't necessarily look bad, especially after about an inch grows back.
I roached my mare's mane (and have been letting it grow 4" before I do so again) and I think it looks great. I can shape the mohawk to give an optical illusion that her neck is nicely arched and her ewe neck isn't as noticable. But, her mane is also thin (a bit thicker down her neck, but not real thick), along with her horrible neck.
I did notice that the hair itself grew back thicker than before I had roached it. Next go-around I'll be roaching and then conditioning with a betadine scrub and then MTG every other day for two weeks. But, the base of her mane won't get any thicker, you can, however, thicken the individual strands..In which I would roach, just because it's easier to see the progress.
