Roached Him! What do you think?

I got so sick of one of my geldings manes. It was so thin and wimpy, and he's a short stocky horse. It looked so funny. So I roached him. I like it, I think a little bit longer and I will be very happy with it! I think he has a nice neck for it. What do you guys think? Keep it roached or let it grow?

I really like it. Can you post more pictures of it? He has a good neck for a roached mane, I think. I say keep it roached :).

He does have a good neck for it ;). I think it looks good and sometimes, roaching a mane will cause it to grow back in thicker. So you should save the "should I or shouldn't I keep it" question for later.

I like it - it suits him. It's really nice when the mane starts growing back, especially if you keep roaching it for a while; it's incredibly thick. I roached my guy years ago and then ended up keeping him in a Fjord roach It's fun to play around with and I don't show so it doesn't matter. I'm going to try to post a picture from a few years ago for you to see. I'm new here and may end up messing it up since I don't know what I'm doing

Omg flutter I loooooooooooooove that! It looks so good on him. That's about the length I like. Armbros mane is so thin, I was hoping this would help it out a bit too.

Thank you! I found if you keep roaching it down the first several months and then let it grow to shape any way you want - it's sooooo much thicker. It's also way too entertaining to play with. Hee hee

Both of those look so good I'm tempted to do Shiloh who has a very thin mane. Do you just use scissors?
