My two girls. Right now it hangs right bellow both their necks. I don't have a straight on picture of Caleigh's Clydesdales mane. I should have taken one today when I went out to talk with the vet. This is the most recent decent mane picture that was taken last year. It's about 3-4 inches longer now.
Legacy's my vanner mare is recent. It was from the show this past weekend. She cleaned up in her halter Utility class. The judges LOVED her. She has rubbed out the middle of the black section on her blanket so now that the weather has warmed up I've pulled her blanket.

And Nav is GORGEOUS!!! Love that mane! and the grumpy grrr face.

I love long manes so I am in the process of growing my Arabs mane out, it my not be super long but it is SUPER thick! Picture 7 of 9 from More photos of my Arab xD Its quite annoying since its so thick I cant do much braiding with it without it looking weird... Lol sorry, its a hard picture to see his mane on, but I dont have any other ones.

E v e r y horse is good for something. You dont throw a whole life away just cause he's banged up a little...

Devas mane is super silky, thick, and about halfway to the bottom of her neck. However I have decided to pull her mane because I think it will look a bit more classy with eventing. Personally I like short manes or really long manes. Also, it's Florida, so short mane it is. Though she not very happy with the pulling process*takes out twitch* Seriously though I'd only pull a few hairs at a time and she'd be slaming me into the walls. So now she goes through some serious groundwork and yes the twitch which relaxes her very much. Ill take some pics later of her with her pulled mane.


And a few of Brandy who has a VERY thick mane. However it doesnt not grow longer than the bottom of her neck as she does not live in braids.

I love short manes on sport horses - I think it suits them but wow some of these manes are gorgeous (the long ones)

Both my horses are sport horses and regually plaited etc so they have short manes


(and this is long for her)


She went from this as a baby:

to this taken the other day (She was broken in jan this year - is only 4)
