Their is a difference, Roaching is like a mohawk with a few inches of hair, as such;

And a hogged mane is straight too the skin, as such;

The picture is a perfect example as to why manes should never be cut with scissors!

You need to learn how to pull it so it thins it out and is not dead straight.

I would not roach or hog her. If you do then it will take a long time to grow out, and will need pulling when it does so.

You have plenty of length there to pull some so it is shorter and more natural.

roaching a mane???

I hogged Mr. Big Stuff's mane...take a look. Page 2.

I'm not a complete idiot--there are parts missing!

What you have become is the price you paid to get what you used to want.

Never know until you try IMO. I hogged Comic this spring. It's hair, it grows back. Unless you are showing you've got all the time in the world to wait for it to grow back. If you hate it just shave it off :)

Since I'm into Arabs, I'm a confessed mane & tail FREAK but I've always hated hogging & roaching manes. I mean, think about it, what part of hog or roach sounds like a horse? UGH
