Sammy got a haircut ......... hehe

Well I have one picture which it is hard to see but in the darker spots he has two massive knots. I tried my best to undo them but to no avail I had to cut them out. I was going to cut them out then pull the rest of it just so it was evened out. Well that didn't go to plan. I soon found out his hair just kept breaking and looking feral. So I thought what the hell I'll just use scissors what a bad idea. I will admit his mane looks a lot healthier but it looks like a bowl cut horse style. Lol so embarrassing I can't wait til it grows back out I was so annoyed I had to cut it in the first place.

ETA: He kept moving around so I gave up so it's not straight.

It's not that bad. Try turning your scissors on end and giving a tip to it. Or...if you're careful you can use thinning shears.

Just an idea....when I have had horses that hated having their manes pulled I would cut it just like you did and then I would take the scissors and just keep lightly chopping into the mane. Like the previous poster said...hold them so your hand is down and the tips are pointing up toward the top of the neck and go back and forth until it looks a little more natural. Hopefully he will hold still for ya lol
