Ah! it's amazing! I love roached manes on horses. Unfortunately, my best friend/trainer doesn't and I was forced to sign an agreement that says "Thou shalt not roach thy horses mane, nor shall thy cut thy horses tail above the hock..." when she surprised me with Cricket.
LOL. She knows me all too well. My mare doesn't have a neck for roaching anyways, and her mane is absolutely gorgeous and thick.
You're gelding is adorable. Love the roached look ;)
