I loove how long manes look, but wouldn't be able to stand it if damaris had one!
Being a Hanoverian, the long mane thing just doesn't suit her... it would be a pain to blobble, and get stuck in her mane over fences. I'll hopefully post pictures soon :P
This is Jazz's mane. He's my new rescue so excuse the skinny. He looks SO much better than when we got him. He has an incredibly long gorgeous mane for any Thoroughbred I've seen. (= He looks so bored because I spent a good 45 minutes grooming him this morning.Haha I'll have to get a good picture of Judah's mane too, its epic. Lol
He looks JUST like my Texas. He's also a rescue TB and he has the long mane like that. I thought the same thing as you, I have NEVER seen TB's with such long manes.
