Bakkir is my first horse of a breed where hair is a good thing. Everyone wants a long flowing mane/tail/forelock on their arabs. My problem is he keeps getting chunks of mane ripped or bitten off.
It happens when I braid him to prevent the wind knots. Twice now he has severed entire braids. And I have already had to cut burrs from his forelock.
What if anything can be done to prevent this? I may not leave his braids in again.
I am used to appaloosas - lol! I never cared about it before!
