Question Mane Pulling

Hi guys! I pulled some of Paradise' mane yesterday. The problem is, it is close to a foot long So, in order to get it down to a good length, I am afraid I would have to pull too much and it would be thin. He doesn't really have a thin mane but I wouldn't say it is thick either. Anyone have any advice?
Thanks,
Tcg (:

Why are you pulling his mane? Does he really need it? Why not use scissors?

I don't show, I just love the look of a pulled mane. I tried cutting my mini's mane with scissors and it looked terrible, so that is why I was going to pull his instead.

Can I pretty please hijack w/ a question of my own? There is a mane pulling comb thing out there that people keep talking about, I think it's like $30 but it is supposed to be a magical device. Does anyone know what it is or where to get it???

Oh and Triple,

You can use either those razor scissors to get it to about 6 inches and then pull or a razor comb (looks kind of like a pocket knife) and then pull.

These are AWESOME! The razor inside makes life so easy, and comfortable for the horse. I went through the same dilemma with my mare, who had a long mane. We had it shortened in about two sessions. Now I just hand pull it in small increments after workouts.

We have a similar, less flashy version at our local tack store for around $3.50.

I think this is what I was talking about as the new thing? I don't know how to use it though?

What I would do, is cut with scissors, and get most of the length off.
Give yourself about three extra inches to work with.
Then, flip it over on the other side, cut it, flip it back over, and use thinning shears to straighten it out. Then pull the rest to the final length and thickness you want.
