In my area there was a case where someone cut off all the manes from a herd of Gypsy Vanner horses. The breed standard has something about "profuse mane and tail" so it was a devastating blow. At least it wasn't permanent or harmful to the horses is all I can say.
Where I board, if you are in the lease-to-buy program, cutting, trimming or clipping the horses mane, tail or body is a breach of contract that could terminate it, depending on the severity.
If anyone touched one hair on Caleb without permission, I would be furious.
