Use that magical MTG and the minute the section is long enough, braid it. It should catch up fairly quickly. He looks like his mane grows quick...

Or... *gasp* You could... Roach it


Wait! Let me run out of the room before you read that last sentence!

English ponies shouldn't have long manes anyway!

That same thing happened to me. I did cry. Then I bought two of these:

The ones at my feed store were not nearly that expensive, so shop around.

Oh GH. I know. My girls did that at the old barn. They were fed by a cattle trough, and they rubbed the same bit out of their mane. I just roached Ricci, but I was very distraught about Gracie's. I roached it as well, but she didn't look as good. She went to her new home with a floppy mohawk but at least it was all even. =]

For some reason nets scare me, I'm sure they are safe, and it wouldn't hurt to slow down the amount this lot eat.

I've seen pics of one like that I wonder if we could build one.

If you have barefoot horses there's nothing to worry about, the holes are too small ti get a hoof stuck.
If shod, you can build a box, sort of, set the netted bale inside, so they can't get hung in the net.
I'm so convinced of the slowfeeders, it saves me almost 40% hay, and I have happy happy horses

No shoes here, so we should be OK, I guess if I just sell one of the **** cow rings I can buy a net.

Do I need a stretch sleezy or neck cover to protect him for best? LOL, it will have to match his springtime waterproof turnout...if it ever gets here that is!

So um, I hate to ask but has anyone ever tried to um....give their horse extensions? Like...people hair extensions?

I had my husband learn to do the micro ring extensions on my hair once or twice. It's really not that hard! Pull the hair through a big loop that comes with it, put the little metal band with the hair attached, then tighten the band with a set of pliers. I mean technically you could use glue in hair...but I think that a product made specifically for people TO LOOK NATURAL...could be a possibility? I mean if you're good with the **** you can buy your own rings and loop tool and use HIS hair.

Using HIS hair if you have any lying around would really look just fine enough to braid, if you're careful to blend it all in...just a thought anyways.
