There are a plethora of reasons for this but due to life right now, Lacey's staying home this summer and I'll finally have time to devote to beautifying her mane.
HOWEVER! I know nothing about caring for manes. I have her tail down to a literal science but her mane has always been an "ehhhhh" thing. Usually I just roach it off for the summer because it's nasty and I don't have time for it but if I can make it great this summer that'd be suhweet.
With her tail, I wash and condition the living daylights out of it on a semi-weekly basis, I pretty much don't touch it unless it's washing day, and devices of brushing don't come near it unless detangler is involved.
I'm still at a bit of crossroads with her mane in general though. I like the long mane look on other horses but I really like Lacey's neck and I feel like her neck is prettier without a mane... It's a dilemma.
Anyway, this is how her mane looked 4 years ago, all scraggly, and what I never want to see it looking like again:
Here's what it's looking like now. I think it's salvageable?
(I never realized how few pictures I take of this side of her!!)
Today, a bit longer than the previous picture:
And mane-less, just for comparisons sake (excuse the spots, she was being a "Snow Leopard"):
Tips? Opinions? :)
