    Thank you all for your input.

    XxXequinegrlXxX - thank you very much! Yes, I am riding in that one picture, thank you for your kind words (I had a bad ride yesterday so getting that message was very nice ) And I am very anti-cutting... besides, her mane is so think it would take forever to do :P My only concern is that it's tri-colored right now, and I've heard that sometimes they won't grow back the same color!

    Dumas - thank you for your input

    Miss Katie - I think so too... and especially for summer

    Jazzy - I know :( I'm SO torn!!! Gah!

    Solon - I use ShowSheen to keep it detangled, and I brush it every time I see her, so it's not particularily unmanageable, it's just that it's long and thick...

    Ayeshaqureshi00 - Yes, I like those scissor-y things I'll consider getting some, but I think she'd be okay with me just straight out pulling it.

    Kickshaw - I do a running braid now, and it takes about 10 mintues to do... hehe it's not something I want to be doing for every ride :(

    Moomoo - she's a Morgan/QH cross... and not showing at the moment, perhaps next year

    JDI - You are sooo welcome ... I just really hate when I have a bad ride :roll: ... I get in such a bad mood ... but horses are like people , they have their good days and bad days. And I have never heard of it growing back a different color , but I have also never had to deal with a mane with different colors. So I don't really know (sorry). Well I hope I was a help and I hope you have a better ride next time! :)

    I would say definitely pull it. Horses look so much more clean and tidy with pulled manes. It will also show off her neck. I would suggest pull her mane and trim her fetlocks. It would make her look so sharp and clean.

    I agree with pulling it as well. Manes grow back pretty fast anyway. And it will be a lot more comfortable for her. It will also look very nice when you are riding or showing her (if you show). Maia is absolutely gorgeous btw! What breed, and age??

    Yes def. I'd cut it/pull it whatever you call it. Lol. I said I'm not happy saying it because it's the cutest lil' mane I've ever seen! It will make both you and her a lot happier and easier to comb it and it won't make her as hot now! It can always grow back!!!

    Good luck on your choice though, very beautiful horse.
    Amen, My gelding will never get his mane pulled, EVER. He is a solid black and I adore his long wavy forelock and mane. I love long manes. I would never pull it unless I really couldnt find a way around it for showing.
