    It won't show up on the camera, elst I'd take a picture of the body clip I did on my horse with EMS last April that would make you feel much better

    1. I don't have body clippers.
    2. The blades were dull.
    3. He still has gawrsh-awful hair lines across his barrel --- from last April mind you

    He wasn't shedding out like he should, our temps were heating up, he was miserable, I took a fit and started clipping.

    All went well with the first day's clipping (those faithful trimming clippers got a tch hot, when all I did was give him a Tuxedo Cut to keep his chest cool.

    Thennnn, I got "scissor happy" because I did such a good job (at least I thought so) and clipped him clear back to his tail the next day - wronnng wronnng wronnng and he's still wearing the hair scars so-to-speak

    Thankfully your mane will grow out but next time remember to leave yourself a pigtail so you can get on. My friend did that once, because the horse did have a scraggly ugly mane. The horse just happened was so tall she couldn't see over the top of him, making it necessary to find a rock to stand on, trailer fender, truck bumper ----------- lollol

    I'm not showing now or any time soon, so the mane on my horse doesn't need to be pretty, but... I'm considering roaching his mane, too. He's scraped half of it off anyway, and it's be funky with it being as uneven as it will be. Fffft. Horses and their itchy spots.

    Ahahah!

    Yeah, the whole roached mane thing is actually a lot nicer than I thought. I went out today, and some poor lady had her draft cross mare in the cross ties, pulling and trying to braid it. The mane was nearly down to the bottom of her chest!

    I'll keep updating with pictures as his moehawk grows out

    I like the buzz cut :)
    My mares HATE having their manes left in plaits .. I can understand that. One mare in particular will rub the plaits.. so I've just let the mane grow naturally. She's mostly retired (with some bush work).

    The buzz cut can look really neat and tidy, and quite smart :) I think it'll suit him.

    I took my mare's rugs off the other day after a few days of downpour and not having anywhere to give her shelter (lives outdoors 24/7 and has shelter breaks and trees, just no indoor areas) and half her mane was matted. I carefully went to gently pull the mess when it all just sort of fell from her neck. I guess it really hadn't been salvageable. So now she has this 8-10cm gap slightly lower than the middle of her mane. Which is really making me wanna hog the **** thing. Every time I say I'm going to do that though, I chicken out haha... and since I want to show at the end of the year I think I'm lucky I know it'll grow back fast!

    I love roached/hogged manes though - it's just so clean looking and flattering on a lot of horses!

    I love the roached look, especially on a handsome, muscular neck. :) much nicer than braids imho.

    Oh my gosh, I would SO me angry at my horse if she did that! At least no more worries about tangles. Hopefully...

    I roached my mare's mane and as long as we are showing I will never go back to having it long. She has the neck for it, and it is soooo easy to take care of, plus I don't have to braid! I hate braiding, and her mane was super thin (typically appaloosa) so I figured it would look like crap anyway.
