To Roach or Not to Roach?

As title says. He has it cut about two inches long right now.

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. :/

I have a horse with a wimpy mane....I feel your pain!!

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.
