It's mostly natural gens. One of my horses as this white thick, beautiful mane and tail but then my other horse has thin and short mane and tail. I can't do anything about it! :( but cleaning it and combing, and using conditioners help to make it look fuller and neater. Putting oil over his hay helps the hairs to get natural oils into the coat.

I never use a brush or comb on the mane and tail. I wash monthly, braid weekly and put the tail in a tail bag, and spray Healthy Hair Care conditioner on the mane and tail braids daily. I work the hair smooth with my fingers only. I wash with Eqyss Micro Tek shampoo and condition with Micro Tek Rebuilder. When it's warm enough or if I have time to heat the water, I use Kolestral from Sally's Beauty Supply for a 'hot oil treatment' and let them stand in the sun under a cooler for 30 mins and rinse with warm water. In winter, I use a blow dryer over the cooler to warm up the conditioner if I need to do a deep condition.

The picture is of Marq My Words, a lovely 7 y.o. Arabian gelding I used to own. He's a Horsey Fabio when it comes to the hair. Not necessarily real thick but very long, sturdy, healthy hair.

What do you guys think about the hair looking better on one side of the neck? My dad was over yesterday and he put all of my gelding's hair to one side and it did look pretty good. I don't know necessarily if it looks better to one side or on both. It didnt stay to one side long though , after few minutes he shook his head and it went back to both sides.

Thoughts?

I think it depends on the situation. If you're showing, I think it looks best neatly down one side. But I love my ponys mane cause its equally on both sides.

LOL, hay, that took YEARS of work and growing. And it's also why I USED to own him, his new owner fell in love with all that blonde mane.

My boys mane is all over the place, and I let it do it's thang unless we have a show. Then I band it all to one side. I'm thinking of braiding it tomorrow even though it is so short. Just to teach it to part on one side.

so to my dad's point the other day, it might look better to some on one side but there's no way to actually make it stay like that all the time lol?

Probably not unless you pull a bunch to thin it so that it's not so thick.
