another dumb question

The barn I ride at has a large ammount of saddlebred horses. Their trainer had lessons going at the same time as my sons lesson last night. One thing I noticed is that ALL the horses had their forelocks shaved off. I asked my trainer, but she had no idea why. Can anybody enlighten me on this??

Fashion and personal preference. No real reason. It is just one more thing to braid in a show, so people will take them off with the bridle path. In that case, you just have a pre braided braid to use that you just stick on for looks. Other barns you might find saddlebred people who like foretops and so the horses have them.
