Sooo, when we purchased Sundance in the Summer of 2009, his mane had been picked out by the fencing and his pasture mates. It was very gapped and we ended up pulling it up to the shortest gap. It turned out well, but at about 4 inches in length. We cleaned him up nice and picked his mane and tail today, and boy has his mane grew out nicely!! I get the feeling if it keeps growing like this, I'm going to be a happy girl! I LOVE a nice mane on a horse! I'd love to see others as well...
This is my boys epic mane. Along with his stupid looking mohawk bridle path that got cut off after my fiance took the picture.
He's 4 on Halloween and has never had his mane cut or trimmed as far as I know. I got him last August and it was really long then. Now it's around 40cm long I think.
Gosh, you guys! Your horses are gorgous! And their manes ;) My horse was out in a corral with others for 6 months before I got him, and his tail isn't past his butt, its dry, brittle, chewed... and his mane is thin and chewed off in places! :( I'm thinking about buzzing it even (which will be VERY short!) and letting it grow.. I'm getting MTG tomorrow, what is that like? Good? For his mane and tail. I've got like five leave in conditioners ready, and flax seed oil for the occasional bran mash.... AHH! So much work for a little bit of hair! But I hope it growss! <3
