pulling mane ...

My mare has a long mane and forlock and I want it to be shorter ... so she looks like an english horse rather then a long lost horse ... lol ... if I was to pull it, it would just get thinner and stay long ... any ideas ... I know some people would kill me if I cut it but I don't know what else to do ... help please!

Well, don't pull the forelock. Longer forelocks are great. I cut sometimes.

I pull manes to thin and shorten them.
Comb the hair then grab the long hairs with your fingers, back comb the shorter hairs out of the way, wrap the hairs in your fingers around the comb and yank.

If the horse's mane is insanely long cut it with scissors so it is only a couple inches longer than what you want for the end product then pull the mane the rest of the way

I hate pulling mane. I adore long mains. My new baby I refuse to ever do anything to his mane where as my 3 year old...well I don't want to do it but he is in need of getting his mane cleaned up.

My geldings mane was long and it needed shortened. I couldn't cut worth anything so I had my friend pull it. Worst mistake I have ever made as far as mane. It destroyed his mane.
