gahh maneess

havent posted on here in a while! hehe.
poor wee chance.. put his winter cover on for the first time in a few months a couple days ago and he must have changed shape or something cause the blooming thing has rubbed half his mane out over night1 i have worked sooo hard to get his mane even and its half gone!
So now im left with the top half too long hand very very thick and the bottom half rediculously thin and an inch long at best.
soo do i .. leave it to grow out?
hogg it allll off
or make it all short and thin to make it even.
my only worry is that i have 2 PC exam's coming up this season and you HAVE to plait for one and i dont know if the other is compulsory or not so it has to be long enough to plait by christmas?
dont know what to do!

Well, you could give him horse feed with biotin in it. It helps with their hooves, but also coats and manes/tails. I would say, leave as is and thin the top portion out?

I have never showed, and I have appaloosas and they don't grow much mane anyway! But, I hope that helps =]

If you need it long enough to plait, then keep it as long as you can in hope that it'll be long enough in time:)

Always keep your head up, but be careful to keep your nose at a friendly level.
