    It's so thin and sad! I've tried everything to make it grow, nutrition, coat supplement, MTG, conditioners, pasture braids. Just doesn't have the genes for it.

    I'll post pictures tomorrow after the deed is done

    Here it is! The other side doesn't look too great. I went out to fix it up and found out she's deathly afraid of scissors (but not clippers!) So I'll probably cut it shorter.

    Side note- I'm having a hard time figuring out if that's muscle or pockets of fat. I want to be aware if there's a possibility of EMS.

    She looks great! When it starts growing out it will go straight up like a brush and you can start training it over on one side.
    I usually clip a wet towel around the neck for 5 or 10 min a day after combing it all over.
