I say no also. I say your horse looks sooo beautiful with his mane the way it is. I think it gives him more character. You can always braid to keep it more managed.

Yeah, I mentioned it to my Dad and he looked at me like I just committed blasphemy. So that option has been vetoed. LOL. Natural it is.
