Hogged mane; it's been a year exactly

It's been a year today that I hogged my mares mane. I just thought I'd show you guys the result, starting with how her mane looked before I hogged it, after I hogged it, and now.

Before Hogging:



Hogged:



Now:

She grew that much in a YEAR? Wow. Sunny probably grows only about 1/4 an inch a YEAR O.O Wow. Looks nice :) Going to hog it again?

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

Yep, that much in a year. As of today, it's been exactly a year since I took the clippers to her mane, lol.

I used MTG weekly on her mane after hogging it until it grew out about two centimeters (so that the sun wouldn't dry her skin out) and afterwards, I used MTG maybe once a month and Machine Oil about twice a month for the first six months. After the tenth month, I quit using MTG (lol... I ran out of it, in other words).

I'm depating hogging it again... I LOVE the way it looks when it grows out enough to stand straight up... but I also want to let it grow out more because I wanna see just how much it will grow out before it gets scraggly. Lol.

Yeah...

The reason I origionally hogged it was half because I was having problems telling my two horses apart when they were in the pasture and half on a dare... I hated it at first, but when it grew out enough to stand up, I fell in love with it.

I had never heard of the term "hogging", I had always used and heard roached. I love this forum because I learn new things all the time.

Still, beautiful horses!

Horses are God's apology for men.
