    After a couple more fine tuning sessions, we got it looking pretty decent I think! :)

    About 3 years ago my paint cochise did that, just kept rubbing off about a 6 inch section of mane and it drove me nuts, everytime it was just about grown back out he would rub it off again...finally it irritated me and I roached his whole mane...he was horrified when I started cutting it all off. Honestly I think he was upset when I did it because he hasnt so much as rubbed a hair off since it grew back out, and he gets this look in his eye when I start towards him now with sissors...(just to trim dead ends off), so don't think Ill have that problem again:) he's a pretty vain horse about his tail and his mane...he doesnt like to be fussed over and groomed but he'll stand there all day if your brushing his tail or mane..wierd horse.

    Dancer normally has a very thick, long, luxurious mane. However, this spring, the whole mane simply disappeared! I couldn't find anywhere in the fences or trees where she might have rubbed it off. My guess would be one of the other horses?

    Anywhoo - it's growing back in by leaps and bounds. I've never seen a mane grow so fast. Maybe she just has a deciduous mane and drops it every so often like trees shed their leaves?

    I need to work on muscling up her neck so that the next time she is naked, she won't look so strange...

    Oh well at least it will grow back roached!LOL I NEVER leave my horses mane or tail braided in the pasture because she does the same! Braided hair it is under more pressure than loose hair so it breaks easier. We both learned that the hard way I guess:)

    Randella, I think he's rocking the roached look! So many horses don't have a good enough neck to pull it off but he does. Plus, the little arch you left in it makes his neck look even better.

    I like it and I think he looks smexy. As for getting on, when my mount doesn't have a mane to grab on to, I normally place my wrist on their crest and flatten my hand against the other side of their neck. It doesn't work as well as a handful of mane, but it's better than nothing.

    Haha! At my old barn we didn't leave braids in, well, we weren't aloud to, because of this!

    Two words: Mane Tamer. Solved my mares rubbing problem. She rubbed in such as way that is actually looked like another one of the horses had taken a bite out of her mane, not flattering.

    I cut my gelding's mane. It was sunbleached and I don't like having a bunch of hair in my way when I ride, so I gave it a chop. I like it much better now. If only I could do something about that pathetic forelock of his.



    Here you can kind of see his pathetic forelock. Next to him is Willow. I can't bring myself to cut her mane. Not even a bridle path. Haha
