I'm letting my arab's mane grow as long as it can unless it gets all manky and uneven, then it will be pulled even to the shortest bit.
Since it's easily a foot long and thus too long to rosette, I do a running braid unless I'm bored and have the time then I'll do a net like you did on the Haflinger and then braid his forelock normally and french braid his tail.
My Appy X QH mare I'm showing soon will have a braided forelock, shaved tail and we're still deciding if we want to hog the mane or attempt to braid it. It never looks that nice rosetted.
