    I wanted to reduce the size of my horse's bridle path so I could let him grow more mane and forelock, but didn't actually see where his bridle lay on his head before cutting...

    Oh... well....

    Ooops - I'd probably just go ahead and even it back up and start over on growing it out.....

    Yeah that's what I'm going to have to do. That was like a month of growth too. :( At least I only solo trail ride so no one knows about it but me and him (and this forum now that I tattled on myself), and he doesn't really care.

    LOL yeah that's the nice thing about hair, the worst possible scenario is that it has to come back!

    The rest of his mane is pretty short since he rubbed out a big piece and I had to even it out to match, so this isn't a major setback for us. I'm not very vain about keeping up his appearance anyway - he gets 24/7 turnout and therefore sunbleached as heck, and I don't spend a lot of time grooming him past picking hooves, making sure his mane and tail aren't matted, and brushing the dirt off his body pre-ride. His baths are few and far between. As long as he is healthy, we are both happy!

    I'd just take out that one middle chunk and just as Janna mentioned, leave the bridle path long. No harm done. =)

    Aw, just say you looked in an ASB grooming book and people will understand. It doesn't look terrible, though I would go ahead and shave it down all the way since you've gone that far. Lol. Good luck.

    See it looks normal to have a long bridle path to me now, owning Arabs, ASB and a Saddlebred

    That made me chuckle, thanks for sharing

    Both my horse's manes look horrible right now, so I can't judge!
