I think they look great with roached manes! :) They look like Greek war/god horses! haha!
Horses that have a thick neck look great with them :) especially fjords :P They just look silly with long manes. XD

Absolutely! And if you don't like it just rub in some "Shapely's MTG" on it and it will be 4 inches in about a month!

It depends. I think if they have a pretty mane and ugly neck, then keep it, but if the mane is bad and neck is pretty, roach it.

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

There was a fresian at the show I was just at with a roached mane and it didn't look good at all, it miight have been because it was a bad cutting job,but I actually thought it looked ugly on him...

I know this is old, but I was flipping though it because I found it on Google.

I just wanted to lol at that link. EQ is such a beast of a community. Always has been, always will be.

Also I wish those photos of were still up from page one or two. I didn't get to see them.
