What do you mean you roached it? Is it like pulling the mane? I am not sure I am still learning some of the grooming technology.

No, roaching is when you shave it completely off:




This is pulling:

Thanks CloudsMystique. I guess that I only cut trim mine. How do you do the roaching? Do you use clippers? I like the pulling though I think better than the roaching. JMO. Does the roaching help the mane come back thicker and more even?

Yeah, I used clippers.

I hate roached manes on thin necks but love them on thick necks, and I hate pulled manes on thick necks but I like them on thin necks.

Oh, and yes, some people roach manes so they can tame the mane as it comes back in.

It helps if you have a mane like this:




But I'm just going to keep his roached.

Cute picture. I might want to see PT's roached. She has a mane like that. Medium neck I think.

Beautiful horse!! I think his neck lends itself well to the roached look, nice job :)

I am thinking about roaching my mares and maybe my weanlings. The baby started out as a chesnut, but his mane and tail are growing in kind of dark silver-like. It looks like I dyed it or something.
