I own a TWH mare whose mane I've roached/hogged and pulled in the past. My mare looks good with a roached/hogged mane, a short mohawk, a pulled mane, or a long mane... but with a long mane, her mane will get a certain length (long, a few inches past her neck) and then get sort of scraggly at the ends, though everywhere else it is thick and full. Her forelock also, no matter what I do, stays very short and thin (I don't think her forelock has grown at all since I've owned my mare, lol... in fact, I noticed yesterday that she's ripped some of it out... and she doesn't have much to begin with, ).
I've been toying with the idea of pulling or roaching/hogging her mane again. Last time I did it was about three years ago, and she rocked it, but I also love her long mane...
I'm not sure which to do!
(sorry, can't provide pictures right now, my home computer isn't playing nicely at the moment... but pictures of my mare can be found in 'my horses'... or whatever it's called... lol...)
