3. That isn't fat on his neck - it's muscle. Horses don't just accumulate fat in one area of their body and have a slim build everywhere else. If it were fat on his crest, he would have a fat belly and croup as well.
4. You obviously don't know very much about Pasos because most of them have pretty thick, cresty necks. His is extra cresty because he was gelded when he was 8.

Don't be offended Mystique. I am pretty sure BarnPrincess was on another forum I am a member of and was finally banned for continuing to make people want to slam their faces into brick walls.

Oh boy. I'm pretty sure Cloud_Mystique knows what she is doing ;) And her horse looks stellar.. I think there's drool on my keyboard by now! :P

I've been contemplating whether or not I should just shave off Sunny's mane and "start over" because it's so skimpy :P Big no-no on a Walking Horse! But hey, there's one in every crowd.

yeah yeah! mane looks cool already but a shaved off mane would suit that chunky horse.

i think it looks better on the palomino, his neck is chunkier

Here's my idea of 'not offensive'
Wow, gorgeous horse! Personally I dislike roaching and prefer him with a mane, but to each their own

Quoting from the rules
"If your post is nasty, condescending, rude, etc., regardless of how subtle, and whether shrouded in the form of opinion or otherwise, it is subject to be removed and your access to the Horse Forum may be restricted."
i agree , differing opinions are fine, but leave at that, being a bigot doesnt help matters when all people wasnt to you to post your opinion on their horse. purposefully posting unnecessary coments that are bound to offemd the owner and othe people.

Keep your feet on the ground when your head's in the clouds.

Haha, thanks. Keegan has SUCH a gorgeous neck. He would look awesome with a roached mane. But then, his mane is so pretty that I wouldn't be able to roach it if I owned him, haha.

Barnprincess you need to learn to chill. No one asked whether you liked the mane or not, I don't care if you apologized or not. It was uncalled for. This kind of stuff is what gets people BANNED. Also, trimming does NOT help mane OR hair grow faster. You got that advice from a hair dresser right? Don't they get PAID to cut/trim your hair? My hair has grown six inches in the past YEAR. Guess what? No trimming! As for horses... good feed, conditioning and MTG do wonders. As well as not combing, it breaks the hair. Now I stopped reading at page eight because I got tired your your snarky comments. Take a deep breath and learn to agree to disagree.

Wow, it looks rily good!! I like it on yours, but I don't know how it would look on my Paso lol. Is the two-tone mane common for all Pasos? Because mine has that too--the new hair is a totally different shade than the old hair.
Gorgeous horse!

and im curious about that fat on the top of his neck ive never seen that on any horse except those with cushings and those that are obese. is that a breed trait? i've never seen a paso w/ a neck like that though.
Wow, that was RILY uncalled for. If she wanted people to tell her how awful her horse looks (when the horse, in all actuality, looks amazing), I'm pretty sure she would have posted a thread for that purpose. Does it make you feel superior or something to constantly make people feel bad?

Cloudmystique I am absolutly in love with your horse. personally I'm not usually a fan of roached manes because I do love a mane on a horse but your horse looks better with a roach. He's gorgeous and I totally wanna steal him.

I'm planning on roaching my Fjord's mane this spring. It is ridiculously long and I need to roach it so it grows up. I tried trimming it but in the end it still sagged over. So sadly, come spring my big guy will have no mane. :)
