How to fix a messed up mane?

Hey everyone! I have a problem. I recently bought a new horse, however, his mane is two different lengths. According to the old owner, he rubbed his mane raw right in the middle....it's growing back, but that middle section is consequently 3 or 4 inches short than the rest of his mane. It looks......special .

Any advice? Thanks in advance!!

Pull it or roach it.

Easy -- cut the rest to match! If you don't want it to look like the proverbial "pot over the head" haircut, cut it 1 to 2 inches longer than you want the finished length and then take small sections and cut up into the mane to get a softer edge.

I would pull it to the shorter lengh :) then it will grow out looking nice, rather than special

Thanks for the advice! One problem: I've never pulled a mane before! How do you pull it so the hair gets shorter?

It would be easier if someone could physically show you. Go get a pair of razor scissors, or a razor knife, they are like 3 bucks. Use that to cut the mane, because you don't want it to be a perfect straight line, it'll look silly.

Have a look on youtube or video jug for an instruction video ;) that would be the best way to lean

I would just cut it all the same length, then start taking care of it regularly so it grows well. =]
What I do, is put mayonnaise in my horses mane and braid it all up so that it doesn't break off or get pulled out or anything like that.
Also MTG is great for growing faster!

Does the Mayo stink?
