So I have aquired a 11.2 HH Cob/Haflinger Pure white pony, he has an amazing mane theres just one thing wrong with it...the minature pony he was hoarded with decided to chew sections out of it. A lady rescued him and I am currently leasing him becuase she has no time to even come out to the barn. Now to the point, my old trainer told me (she keeps her horse at this barn) that if I put M-T-G in it and keep it braided that it will grow out and than to take it out for one day every week brush it and than put the braids back in. I have never heard of this and I was wondering if I could have your guys opinions on if this is a good method and if not do you have any other ways that might help? I don't want to do it this way and then his mane look like crap becuase the mane he has is gorgeaus!
