Horrible pasture mane.. *pics*

So, after not seeing my horse for several months, and her being pasture kept the whole time, I was finally able to go see her today. She had long, tangle free hair, but when I saw her.... it was in knots, and I can't even describe how bad they were.

I was certain it was going to take me 3 or more hours to even start to undue them. But with the help of a another person, they came out so quickly! I don't have any before photos, but I have after! And her manes pretty long, but theres a spot almost at the bottom of her neck that's really long, half her shoulder, the rest is still mid-long. Lol. The ones of her mane are kinda dark, but you can see it if you look carefully. (: And the ends of her mane are sunbleached, is there any way to fix that? Im not dieing it, or doing anything like that. Sorry their so big :/

Looks good now. Unless you want to dye her mane, there isn't anything you can do about her "highlites".

Poo... im going to be model showing her, so do you think they'll take off points for that, or think its just supposed to look like that? Does dying a horses mane hurt it?

Model showing, what is that? As for regular, under saddle classes, no they do not mark you down for a sunbleached mane. Dying hair whether it be on a horse or your own head doesn't hurt as long as you don't drip the dye in the eyes or swallow it!

Model classes. Make her look pretty, groomed up all the way. Its like halter showing. Judging their conformation and looks.

Oh, and if I do dye it, would it match her mane? I don't want the bottom to be darker black, or some odd thing happpening. Lol.

It will turn out just fine if you use the right color. I have done my horses mane. PRetty easy on a horse as dark as yours.

So just a regular cheap black hair dye? I really hope it turns out the same. Lol

Just protect her coat from it, black hair dye stains REALLY fast, especially the pharmacy bought one. Any type of petroleum jelly based product will protect the coat, make sure you give it 2-3 REALLY good shampoos to get all the chemicals out, and careful with her eyes, ears, and nose. You have a very pretty mare! Good luck

Could you maybe pull her mane? I'm not sure what model showing is, but pulling would get rid of all the messy bottoms...Just a suggestion :)
