That mane is an easy fix for WP. All you need is about 2 inches of even mane. Band it and put a sleazy on him, it will lie flat & look good. I had a 3 yr old QH with the same mane, I got a good 2 inches at it's shortest point, so that's what I cut it off at, neatened it up with scissors, banded it really tight and put a sleazy on him, looked excellent the next morning for the show.
I roached one of my mare's manes. I used a fetlock scissors. I cut it to about 1.5-2 inches long and left it for a couple days then came back and roached it all the way once the short hairs were standing straight up. Made it a lot easier to make it nice & even.
My mare looked great with it roached but now I maintain about a 1.5" mohawk that is even better!
Kato, there's a pic of my boy on the previous page. He basically looks like a smallish Percheron with loud black and white pinto coloring. Do you think he'd look ok/good with a roached mane? Posted via Mobile Device
Has that nice drafty build I love! As long as his neck is as substantial as the rest of him looks to be I think he would look great roached. If you don't like it at least it grow back, and he will be cooler until it does.
Kato, he's got a nice, thick neck that is proportionate to the rest of him...except his head. Lol. His head looks like it belongs on an 19hh Clydesdale (minus the roman nose).
Smrobs, I hadn't thought of those! That's a good idea. He's gotten to the point where if he even sees the electric clippers, he gives me a nasty look like "Don't even think about it." He's such a goon. Posted via Mobile Device
Comic has a thin mane that I hate. I'm hogging it this spring. Was going to do it today but it was raining and yucky. Might have to wait a couple of weeks. I'm also hogging my mini geldings mane. He has a super thick mane that hangs half way to the ground. It's a pain to keep clean and brushed out. It's going bye bye.
