Hogging her mane?

Ignore the terrible pictures ha, but do you think that my mare would look good if I hogged her mane? I recently cut it waay too short and I am looking for a way to fix it.

I think it would look really good, especially once it grows out a tiny bit- It looks really good in the first picture.

What is" hogged". I have nevered heard that term. One thing that I like about this forum is you learn something new ever time.

I was told that reaching leaves some hair, while a hogged mane is clean shaved.

I think "hogged" is more of a British style term. Before I came on here I had never heard of roaching, pretty much everyone I've ever met/heard speaking of it in the UK calls it hogging, even in stable management/grooming books etc.
