Pretty, but not something I would want to deal with. I really don't see the point of keeping a mane so long, it is dragging the ground...

It's genetics. The spanish horses are expected to have long manes and tails, and it is considered part of their beauty.

Banoota, I must just point out that those fotos of the long haired white andalusian you took from my website Andalusians for You in Spain are copyrighted.

I am the photographer, and there are clear copyright notices on the pages which state that the pictures may not be reproduced without permission.

I am not going to hassle over this, as I am assuming you acted in ignorance, but I do pursue any unauthorised use of the photos, especially on commercial or moneymaking sites.

Love God. Respect people. Live life. Enjoy your horses.

It's not only genetics, it taks a good deal of care too :P
*knows lots of spanish horses with normal mane since their owners doesn't care about it*

Always keep your head up, but be careful to keep your nose at a friendly level.

I don't really like them THAT long. It just looks like cobwebs falling off the horse's butt and neck. It's mainly genetics though.

I love long manes and tails but thats just obsured. I love seeing horses with natural manes and tails but what most don't relaize it is possible doesn;t matter the breed my friend has an applossa that has a better mane and tail thatn most I have ever seen. the thign most don't relzie its starts with nutrion. flaxseed biton are excellent for hair growth. MTG works great to i use it weekly on my babies but i would never want them this long. its dangerous and alot of work. happy trails everyone

I love a long thick mane. I know an andalusian stallion who's mane is a quite a few inches past his neck... and his forelock reaches to his nose. I think hes very beautiful :) I like them long.. but not to the floor.

.... hey the stuff that makes horse's hair grow.. does any of that stuff work on humans? tehe.. my hair is a bit thin. *blushes*

It mainly protects the hair from being rubbed or worn, more than making it grow :) I havn't tried it but I imagine your hair would seem rather greesy after uing it..

I can reccomend trying ''green soap'' or what it's called in english for your hair tho. Feels funny untill it's dry but leaves a protective, invisible layer around the hairs, and is really good for skin and so too. (doctors have recommended it on small injuries and the like on both horses and people)
It's usually sold as a washing thing for floors and such in the store..bt wth.. x) Natural ad gentle, made of pine trees or so.

Always keep your head up, but be careful to keep your nose at a friendly level.
