Maybe just let it grow out if you are not showing soon. Manes grow faster than you think. I have to pull my horse every month.

Hog it. He looks good without a mane. I'm partial to a hogged mane on a thickset horse.

Me too. LOL. I just cut it Monday when he arrived, and it was somewhat long but VERY thin and stringy. :/

His mane is the thickest hair he has too. His tail and forelock are relatively long, but its just a few hairs.. glad I'm not doing WP with him because he'd definitely need a fake tail.
