I wasn't sure if I shouldn't place this in grooming but its also a health question. Does the forelock in a horses eyes cause sight problems over time?
I normally trim Vida's forelock out of her eyes once the fly problem ends in the fall. It grows back by the next spring so I'm not leaving her fly swatter-less. I get kidded every year when I do it but I figured I was helping her see better. Am I?
Here's a photo of her last year after I cut them. Sorry its sort of blurry but you get the idea. Her bridle path trim is growing out too so she looks like a punk rocker The forlock is usually down well below her eyes
