I have MTG, have not used it on this guy lol but we did se it on my sister gelding who was 23 because we roached his mane when he rubbed it off before fair and it only took a couple months for several inches of growth. Love that stuff!

Ohh that stuff is amazing and PLEASE donate some of that lovely mane to my poor girls even though the colour wouldnt match any of them lol. I never though of thinning sheers, I guess that would work duh *face palm*

Maybe I could start to thin out underneath? So then if I mess up its not noticeable.

Ya that would work, because you don't show right?

Exactly. Well he is going to be used for some high school showing with one of my sisters friends. But they aren't very strict. But even just doing underneath they won't see it.

Not sure if you live in the US.. but my mare has a mane, tail and forelock like that..... I use a human product called " Silkworks " and it's just amazing !!.. use it after a bath, while M,T,F is still damp and pour a decent amount in your palms and rub it deep in, you can NOT over do it, will never look oily... you'll be able to comb out without any knot's or pulling and it STAY'S for weeks ! No frizz and you can also use it dry for the in-between bath time's...Also add's moisture and shine... simply wonderful stuff....Kinda like Bio_Frizzk, but a fraction of the cost... you can get it at just about any Walgreen's, Walmart ( cheapest )... that sorta place... It's great for your hair and skin too !

I just had to say that his mane is stunning! And the horse underneath is rather pretty as well :). I LOVE how it looks with the top half braided, very nice indeed. Anyway, I would suggest thinning it by pulling it or using thinning sheers. I know what it's like to have a horse with a big mane. My 2 year old has a long thick mane. Yeah, it's gorgeous, but it's a LOT of upkeep if I don't want it to turn into dreads LOL.

Thank you :) and he's quite the love bug too. It's so crazy trying to keep it from treads huh? Lol and my horses are out in pasture 24/7 so he usually gets stuff in it like sticks, dirt, manure, sap and whatever else he rolls in.

My two year old (he's the horse in my avatar) is on pasture 24/7 as well and it's a challenge to keep his mane clean!
