To hog or not?

I got a new horse the other day, beautiful burnt buckskin gelding. Denny has a fairly sun bleached mane. Under the top bleached layer is a beautiful rich black mane. I'm wanting to hog it to start from the beginning and to make sure it doesn't bleach in show season. My only concern is, does he have the neck or it? I don't want him to look like an idiot. Haha.

I wouldn't hog it - come show season it will probably be in the straight up phase.

Someone on this forum used hair color (with lots of plastic wrap to protect the neck) and did a fine job getting rid of the sun bleached top layer! Hopefully they will pop in this thread and share their experience.

No don't hog! It certainly won't suit him now, and in six months time it will look like an overgrown toothbrush.

Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.
