I would also leave it - it's really not that bad.
One of my horses came to me with his mane chewed off as far up as the Seller's donkey could chew it. It took a couple years to reach its full growth but it finally grew down below his shoulder blade - much prettier than I expected.
Manes and tails usually do a lot of growing in the winter, when they're not swatting at bugs; add some flax to the feed pan and see if that doesn't speed things up:)
