Mane Growth [before and after PICS!]

I made a thread for this on HGS.. but maybe you guys will enjoy it too? Please share your mane or tail growth pics too!

When I got Penny, she had just grown out her mane after she rubbed it off in one section. I keep her mane braided now because she gets sooo sweaty when it's down. I took it out today to redo it and it was wet from just hosing her down so it was straight and HOLY COW it's grown! I got her last October and the before pic is from then.

Before: (october 2009)


Now: (kinky form braids)


Now: (hosed to make straight)



All braided up again:


Forelock before: (was thinned to make less frizzy I think)


Forelock now:

Wow! Good job. It's really coming along :)

I don't have any progress pics, but my process goes a bit like this:

Assess the length of the mane.
Wash thoroughly to get any dirt out of the roots.

Then...

Shave the bugger off with clippers!

I'm a hogged mane fan, myself :]

That's great! Looking really nice now. Even though I personally prefer keeping my horse's mane's short, I have to say that it suits your horse.
