^I actually really like how Sonya's mane is short, but that is just my opinion, lol!

My mare's mane is still in the process of growing out.. She rubbed it off in her previous home.

I aiming to get it somewhere around the length of the OP mare (pschh in my dreams!)

please excuse the mess in the background!

Thank you! I am kind of starting to like it now that it has grow out a little and doesn't look like it has been just cut.
I may have to cut it off next year when I am showing her, but I can try bobbling it when it is longer, I don't mind. I like it more when it is long, because it is such a different colour with her body, and you can really see it when it is long.

justinebee I am the same way. On some horse long manes looked great but others... I think short manes look best. That's just my opinion of course :)

You can see both my girls manes in my avatar pic. They have grown out a bit now but I've been waiting to really "clean" them up until after I moved them. (moved them today, they are home and grazing in their new pasture, which is my backyard : ) )

Wow, my horses are hairy LOL. None of them get any special treatment or care to keep them long except brushing out the knots if they get started.


John:


Denny: His is kinda short-ish and poofy.


Dobe: He is one of my Mustangs .


Jesse:


Koda: His is crazy long and so thick that I am seriously considering roaching the silly thing (if his neck was prettier). He had a patch growing out that he had rubbed out.


Pokey: his is kinda dinky, like Denny's


Bessie: Please forgive her poor fugly head LOL.


Nester: his is pretty skimpy too.


Jet: he had a really nice, flowy mane.


Flash: his mane is kinda old (same as him LOL)


Rafe: His is thick and poofy but it looks like it is going to be super long when he grows up.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Not the best one I have, but shows how long it is...she needs some pulling and trimming done though...
