Thatīs it! My standardbred mare rubbes half of her mane off every summer (because of insects bites, repellent doesnīt help much), I cut it all off and during winter the mane grows thick and heavy, right now it starts falling on side of the neck (you can help it by putting a wet towel on the mane to keep its shape or to keep it on one side of the neck).
