Much like people, a lot of it is genetic as well. There are things you can do to encourage healthy hair growth, but you very well may never coax her mane to grow as long as you're wanting it. My Arab gelding had such a pathetic flimsy mane, I just gave up and roached it. Meanwhile, my Arab mare has a mane that just grows like a weed. I don't do anything to it, and it's just everywhere, down to the bottom of her shoulder. Well, it was anyway, until she decided to stick it through the dang fence >.< Now she's missing a chunk that's finally starting to grow back and looks ridiculous.
Haha, her TAIL though, that's a different story. She looks ridiculous. I've been braining and using MTG and I've noticed a good difference, but tails are a lot easier to encourage growth from then manes in my opinion, since manes are usually a target for trees, catching on things, and other horses mouths.
I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.
