Cool pull it? or do something else to it?

hey guys :) bucks mane has officially started to annoy the *BLEEP* out of me


(awesome glittersss )

Its been basically the same length since I've had him, just over a year now, maybe an inch longer if that.

So I was wondering if I should pull it, or maybe get something to sort it out. I don't know if its going to get any longer, and I may just crop the wither-mane off, since its gotten rubbed by old rugs and not grown back very well, and it gets caught under the saddle pads etc.

Its also quite thin in places, and thick in others, its like he's rubbed some off in places grrrr, its all different lengths and tons of different length layers haah..

Tell me what you think!! Because otherwize ill just go crazy and shave it all off! Lol!

I vote pull it. It will get rid of the long stuff, but keep the lovely fullness. And it will look more natural.

I'd say hog it. It'll grow back thicker. My mares mane did, and I think he'd look good with a hogged mane.

I'd pull it, but use a cheater comb. It will still lok naturall, but it will shorten without losing the thickness. I've heard main and tail growth works great for growing out the short parts

I would pull it, and after that give it a good wash with mane conditioner and brush it until it has no tangles.

I would pull it, and then use some MTG on it. That will make it grow back quick!

coolies :)

He's a grass kept horse, so would MTG be alright to use still? And where can I get some?

Yes, you could still use it. The place I get it at is TSC. I am not sure if you have a tractor supply near you? Or you could order it online. But most Equine stores carry it.
