Oh, and I ride English. I don't show, and probably wont be for a long while.
Ah, and I hear that hogging is all the way down to the skin like such;
And roaching is leaving a mohawk... like such (Sorry, extremely bad example photo)
I personally, would WAY rather have a roached mane than a hogged mane, but should I hog it first, and then once it grows out, keep it trimmed for a roached mane? And also, if I do hog/roach it, should I leave the forelock?
Rusty... on the side without a mane
And the side with a mane
Now... more questions; how exactly do I hog/roach a mane? Do I have to thin it first, then clip it off? Or can I just clip it off? I will most likely be using clippers, as I can't even cut his short bridle path straight with scissors And... would he look alright with a roached/hogged mane?
