Has anyone shaved the few inches of mane over the wither? It just becomes messy on my horse because of the saddle/saddle pad. I can't really braid it because the pad tugs on the braid and then he grumps over it. I was thinking of just shaving it off.
Has anyone else done it? Just curious if it worked out.
I do it all the time, and actually find it useful in giving the illusion that my mare has a better wither than she does... and it opens up her shoulder more... a trick I learnt from a show friend haha. I find it neater and less irritating on the horse to have the hair removed from there :)
