Okay, okay. I know I am one of the biggest advocates of the "leave the hair natural" club but John's mane is so thick and unruly. The base of the mane is so wide that I cannot get it all to lay on one side and look good no matter what I do. The base is at lease an inch and a half wide because his silly neck is so big. I am seriously considering roaching it short just to make it easier to manage. I know that most horses don't pull off a roached mane well but I think he has a good neck for it. Please tell me what you think.
