Awe! Try having someone feed him treats and distracting him while you pull the rest of it. My old mare, Dancer, was a nightmare to do - so I used to stand there with a bucketfull of crunchies and just kept popping them in her mouth while my trainer pulled her mane ... heh.

This may not be the best solution but if he's hot food agressive you could try starting while he's eating.idk if it would help but don't try if he's food agreesinve.or tie him on crossties.he should be able to stand there.or you could try when he gets hay- if he gets hay-and if can probably give him a flake to keep him still.hope this helps!!!

Because of how long her mane is, you should cute most of it off first THEN pull it. I wouldn't even both trying to go straight to pulling because even with what you were able to do, unfortunately it's still long. If you cut most of her mane off first you will save her from aggravation, you some work and you will be able to pull her mane and it look nice and pretty and at the right length.

Just adding to what my 2 geldings said...cut the mane but do it with scissors that don't have a pointy end! Especailly if she is impatient because she might stab hersself.Be Careful!
