Mane Rubbed Out

So my 2 year old rubbed most of his mane out before I bought him. What would be best??

Leave it be
Cut the long part/s to match the short
Roach it and start over

I'm open to any suggestions. No showing going on this winter but possibly in the spring.

How much has it grown out since you got him?

If he grows really slow, I would be hesitant to roach it.

I've only had him for a week or so. Not really sure how fast it grows yet

I'd roach it and start with some MTG

When mine do lovely things like that, I roach 'em, and then I use MTG until I'm sure it's not a fungal thing, then I switch to Healthy Hair Care conditioner sprayed on everyday. It smells BETTER! I also use Eqyss Products Microtek leave in conditioner once a week or so. Also, they get a sleazy from then on.

Sorry, but there is no fixing this, you have to make it even. So roach it off. The rotter, huh?

Oh, the glorious times when horses decide they want a new hair style.

Roach that sucker!

I would shave his mane and start over. Be careful with MTG because it burned my horses mane off :/ It works great for some horses but some can have a reaction to it.

I agree with the masses. Roach it and start over!
