I'm debating if I want to roach my geldings mane at the end of the month. He likes to roll and he gets it all matted and tangled in mud and manure which ends up getting brushed out and leaves his mane thin and wispy. It is a beautiful ice white when clean but after a couple days it turns yellow again from rolling ect. If I roach it soon, once it warms up a bit, he will have all spring to grow it back if I end up not liking it. I would probably leave about an inch of length on his mane because I don't like the completely shaved down look. Do you think he could pull it off?
^please don't comment on saddle fit. It has been addressed already in another thread...this is an older photo, but I think he looks handsome in it :)
This is what I deal with on a daily basis during the beginning and end of winter/spring lol
