Exclamation To Pull or Not To Pull

Ok So I just got this mare a week ago. I have been debating about pulling her mane or not. The only reason I have thought about not doing it is because she has big, unrefined ears. Lol. Please give me your opinion. Thanks!

Sorry I got picture happy, but I wanted to show her whole body type.

Yeh I would pull it- the mane won't really affect the perspective of her ears- she kinda needs a bigger forelock doesn't she?

Shes got some ears on her that is for sure! =) but she's a sweetheart, and I can forgive her ears.

I myself prefer natural manes over pulled ones, also it does hurt the horse...maybe not as bad as ripping out your own hair, but they still can feel what you are doing.

Awww I love big ears :]

But I would pull it - looks neater.

Its up to you, but you have to consider (to me at least) it looks like she's a App. And Apps arent know for their hair growth

She is an app, but I don't understand if you are saying I should or shouldnt. I was going to razor it, not actually pull it.

Its up to you, I personally wouldnt.

Since she's an appy, it's kind of a decision to need to take as a semi-permanent thing. Apps don't grow their mane back very quickly at all, especially in any kind of thickness, and it gets worse as they get older.
Her ears remind me of my first show mare's, people always commented on how huge her ears were, but I loved them! Heehee, she's cute!

I'd definitely pull it. I think she'll look really nice with it pulled =)
And if you weren't happy, well..there's always MTG?

Wow, look at that poor little tail! I hope she doesn't get too many flies, poor thing. She's quite a cutie though! <3
