Thank you for all the responses. I will be sure to post pictures this weekend. I didn't have my camera with me last weekend. I will try the braiding first and if it doesn't work, I will cut it off. LOL

Where can I find MTG?

[quote=Dumas'_Grrrl;229694]I happen to be the resident roach-a-holic. I love a roached mane. If you're boy has the neck to pull off that look, I'd say go for it. ( I will be jumped by the anti-roach gang for this... hehehe )

Most tack shops and even tractor supply carry MTG.
It is called Shapleys MTG.

Ok a little random but I use to work at this horse farm where the one trainer told me that if your horses mane rests on the left your horse was left handed and if your horses mane fell to the right it was right handed don't know if this was true but she did show me a few examples and it made me wonder....if this is the case then your horse must be ambidextres(no idea how to spell that) ha ha ha

You can put MTG on the mane where he has the dry flakes and that will help. It helps on my mae and colt.

One of our old horses had a double mane and we never did anything about it because it suited him... My mare used to have a bad double mane... I hated and loved it, but after I started brushing it over and putting MTG in it to make it heavy, it eventually tamed down on one side except for at the very bottom of the mane where it was very short and thin. I got tired of that being different and hogged my mares mane back in august, though... so that I could tame it as it grew back out. Lol.

Hope this helps a little bit.

As many people have already said braiding the horses mane over to one side works really well.

I've seen this often -- totally natural and I love the look, but maybe it's not accepted in show circles?

Flakes -- try a mild dandruff shampoo just at the roots and rinse well.
