It's neat but those photos just bother me. Looks so odd. I can only imagine how much care must have gone into that hair. In order for that mane to show off on the seldom occasion it must spend days up in braids or wrapped up. Doesn't make much sense to me.

WOW

Hm, although its beautiful, trust me...its VERY hard to maintain. I prefer short manes and tails...expecially in the hot weather.

I like sorta-long manes (like the one in the second pic) but I hate the long tails. I wouldn't want to own a horse like this...but it does look pretty in the ring (but too long, is too long and looks freaky)

some of my mom's arabians get long tails, but we cut them before they get too long, because we ride ours and the length gets in the way. Im a Fjord girl, so I don't have to worry about long, flowing manes :)

What kind of horses are they?? And do the horse's mane and tail grow all by itself naturally or do they use some kind of feed or something that make the horse's mane and tail grow long?

Well Im sure ALOT of care goes into the hair, and yes they probobly give them supplements. They probobly wash the hair every day and condition it. I bet they go through alot of tail bags :)

A couple of those are QHs and one is an Andalusian.

I know the first one in the picture is an andalusian horse.

It's been awhile, but I'm back & back in the saddle!

That last picture freaks me out. Is that even real??
