Her mane is driving me mad...

Okay, so my new girl has a pretty funky mane. It has been hogged/roached in the past, and is now a couple of inches long & sticks up vertically.. well, the bottom half of it does.. as it gets closer to her head it kind of hangs down.. slightly lol what on earth can I do with it?! I had considered dying it a bright colour and calling her my punk pony. ;) im joking of course, I wouldnt do that. But seriously..any ideas? Lol

yess >.< id never hog it again, she has a slight ewe neck / knife neck so I kinda like that fact that it makes her neck look thicker, but it just drives me insane because it looks so scruffy just sticking up like that lol

My mares mane did the exact same thing ! What I would do is either put a sleazy on it for a few days, or braid it, in a long, down the neck running braid, it might be a little difficult considering the length. The last thing I can think of it to buy some MTG, I love it for mane growth ! Use it religiously and her mane will be back to normal in a few weeks :)

Dampen it with a sponge, and braid it with about 8-12 braids, pulling down with every crossover. Rebraid every few days. It's a pain, but it does flatten the mane! If the braids flip up, you can put a sleazy on her.

thank youu! >.< i'll try braiding it to help flatten it down. And i'll definitely look into MTG, I want her mane to be thick to help with the whole ewe neck thing just so she looks less like a giraffe lol

Using a lyrca hood can also help train a mane to lay down Worked wonders for a cab at our yard, her mane was the same as your mares (who is just BEAUTIFUL by the way!), sticking up at the top & falling down towards the bottom. As time goes on the mane will grow longer & it will fall down much easier :)
