But I am afraid to do it and yeah..haha can you guys tell me if you think he could pull it off? I think he would look adorable, also- have any tips or whatever on how to do the mohawk? Thanks!
Here are some pictures of my horse,Turtle, so you can see if it may look good or not.

If you can wait a few months you could just roach it... other than that I don't know.

Ya I think you would have to roach it and then let it grow kind of like when you do a bridlepath and it grows back into a mohawk type thing

Yeah that's what I was thinking about doing! I just hate the thought of him having "no mane." for a few months!! XD

I roach my horse's mane once a year around mid-late spring. By summer she has a KICKIN' mohawk! Lol. Then again, she also has SUPER thick mane, sometimes I suspect that it's a double mane, and if I leave it long, it gets dreadlocks and oversweats her neck. It also helps that she has coarse hairs to begin with lol. All the better to stick up!

My horse currently has a Mohawk. That's mainly because I attack it with scissors every month or so. :P

Start out just roaching the bridal path or the area just above the withers. If you like it, just do it all the way up lol.

OR, just go on and do it. Seriously, by winter, it'll all be back lol
