This is Malachy's mane, very thick despite foalie's attempts to pull and thin it for him.

And his tail to match;

His mane is bad because it gets chewed off by Princess & a few other horses . It sticks strait up but I tried to band it down (didn't work very good)

At least his lack of mane doesn't affect his showing! Congrats on the 1st place!

He keeps rubbing out the section of his mane where it switches from black to white hair...maybe roach him? :/


Poor Scotch before he rubbed his beautiful forelock off last winter. It is about 4 inches long now, but hopefully it will catch up soon. I have never cut his mane except for a bridle path.


His mane is VERY thin, but it seems to be getting longer. Quite the feat for an elderly appaloosa!

Caleb's mane hasn't changed much since I got him,
Two summers ago, before he was mine:

Last summer, my first summer with him:

This summer, our second summer together:

Its roughly 10-11" at the top/forelock and about 21" at the longest point, it looks a lot shorter than it is because he has a fat Percheron neck. In the first picture he was actually fit and he was stretching his neck, so his mane looks longer.

But Caleb's mane is weak compared to Paulo's he has a beautiful mane. Very wiry though.

This is my Filly Serenity, she has a beautiful, thick mane and tail, not like her momma that is for sure. Her momma had the typical Appaloosa mane and tail, I got lucky with Serenity:

Here is a pic from last year:

Here is a pic of her momma, I owned he for 5 years and NEVER cut her hair, it just didn't grow!
