my lump, what do you think?

Should i hog him completely or let his mane and feathers grow out, they do grow to the floor but hes had a trim due to mud fever this year. Sorry about pic quality only they were so large that they have resized funny.

WOW what a handsome man......leave his mane, its all part of his glory! but I understand clipping feathers to stay on top of mud fever....easier to treat if you can see it. He definetly is beautiful!

i think he looks lovely just as he is. however if he gets mud fever or itchy heels(any problems in that area) then i agree it would be a good idea to trim his feathers to manage the condition easier and for his comfort.
