Wow I have to same experience as travlingypsy, how is the mares owner pulling the mane? I've also never seen blood before. That's a trippy thought. |
I've actually seen it before.
But it only happens when people pull out big clumps of hair. If you're causing a horse to bleed, you need to back WAY off the amount of hair you're pulling.
Re: banding the forelock, I do the same thing as the other poster. I band a section right at the top of the forelock, then grab more hair from about an inch below that, then take a final section of hair an inch below that. I DO NOT band the whole thing...my horse looks like a dork with his forelock banded at the very end.
This is the best picture I could find that shows what it is we're talking about. Sorry it's not a close up.
