    Which side the mane falls

    Lately I have everyone telling me that I need to pick a side Jinxx's mane should be on and train it that way since his mane is half on one side and half on the other. I don't really care what they think since he's my horse and if I want to keep it that way I can keep it that way. I have let it do what it wants and now is seems to be mostly on his left side. This got me wondering. Does it really matter what side his mane is on? If I decide to show him down the line, which would probably only be low level if I do, is there a correct side and a wrong side of the mane?

    My horse has a half and half mane as well, and I don't train it. For showing you want it on the right side, so technically most of his mane is on the wrong side. But I've found (at least with my gelding) that I can braid him all on the right side and it looks just like his mane naturally all falls to that side. So I wouldn't worry about training it, I know I don't. Plus as I understand it, the new growth always comes in like the mane is supposed to be, so you will either be having to constantly train it, or it will go back.

    Angel and another horse I use to have both have their manes on the right side as well. Angel use to be a show horse so I don't know if someone trained it that way or that's just the way her mane grows. The picture is from when Jinxx was younger and getting his first bridle path clipped, but it shows his split hair.

    My mare was a WP show horse before I got her. As you can see, she has a FULL mane on her right side. However, she has "over flow" on her left side that just can't fit on the other side without looking like a bouffant. Her tail is also LONG, and though it's hard to see because the wind is blowing, it alllllllmost drags the ground. Her mane has some curl to it too :)









    I LOVE the black in her tail. :)
