Nicos is thick towards his ears and thin towards his withers.
Kinda pathetic but it would look worse if it was trimmed!

This is after I combed it after a bath. I've never taken scissors to it unless I've been doing his bridle path. It was also a few months ago and it's grown a fair bit since then as well. I'm just slack and haven't uploaded new photos...

We roached Otis' mane - he's a bad lad who likes to roll, and since he's not doing any showing anytime soon, we roached it. I think he looks like a {dirty and fat} lippinzanner; a bath is next on the list.

Toby rubbed a huge protion of his mane out - it used to be really long and ugly. We roached his, as well. It's grown out a bit since then.

I'm going for the zebra look so I roached Gidget's mane. I love it. I still comb through it though :) keeps dust from building up.

Here is my gelding's mane

Here is my mare's mane- She had huge mats in her mane when I bought her, so it is now short.

I recently had to cut Sonya's mane after a little foal who shall remain nameless decided to chew part of her Mommy's mane off. :(
Trimmed it so the section isn't as noticeable, as it wasn't chewed all the way to the roots, thank goodness!

Here it is before the little brat got a hold of it:

And after I trimmed it:

I don't really like it as short as it is, but it will grow. Not too worried about that. MTG is doing it's job!

And my 3 month olds mane. I don't really have any good pictures. I will have to get some!

Sonya ~ 5 yr old Appaloosa/Welsh mare
