My yearling has a wild mane, and I'm trying to figure out what to do with it. I don't really want to pull it, but I am slowly training it to all go to the same side.
I have a show at the end of July, so I am starting to try and figure out what to do with it. Maybe braid it? Trim the ends so it looks neater? Band it? I'm not sure, so ideas are greatly appreciated! Pictures too!
I posted a photo of his mane so you can get an idea of what would look best. Thanks so much! Oh and please ignore his low weight. He came from the BLM underweight and we are still working on getting it back on.
I won't be stopped. I can't be stopped.

I am sooo lazy when it comes to pulling manes...but I do like a short, neat look. If you decide to trim it, try to use a pair of thinning shears - I'm a dog groomer, so I used my old pair to do it, but you can get the Martha Stewart ones from Petsmart. They're inexpensive and are sturdy enough for the job. That way you can have a neatened up but natural look without making it obvious that you just cut it. If done right it emulates a pulled look really well, without nearly the same amount of work. :P
