But if you don't like how it turns out after all the cleaning and careful grooming, maybe cutting it would look nicer to you :)
ok I surel will. I think I have seen images of horses mane looked like they were trimmed at an angle instead of straight across and they looked fine to me. Like start trimming at one level then towards the middle going downward then midways stay at that level then going back upwards toward the other end.

To the other poster, the buckskins hair looks good. I think the horses mane looks better if it doesnt droop down past the neck. Then again maybe I will be more satisfied with how mines look when I get it looking more fluff and soft but I still think I will end up trimming it a little shorter to where it doesnt ast the neckline.

I do the same method of flipping it over on the other side. Works really well.

I keep my horses mane really short, but I'd assume it would work the same on a long mane.

For your horses mane, I would just give it a good wash and condition, brush it out carefully with a paddle brush, put some coconut oil in, and just leave it alone.

Genetically, his mane is on the thinner side, but what you can do now, is keep the hair that's there now, hydrated and strong, so it won't break off, and instead grow all the way down.

Loosely braid it if you want. I'm not usually a fan of braiding, but then again, I have short manes, so I don't have the problem of managing long manes. It does help though,

a good moisturizer should work well also right? Does the coconut oil come in a spray as well as rub in oil?

I found this pic online and this is probaby the best I'm gona achieve with him
