Weights in the mane..?

Someone recently suggested that I put little fishing weights at the ends of a braided mane to weigh it down so it'll grow more..

I just don't see that actually working? I don't know, what do you think?

I highly doubt it'll grow more. I imagine it would be uncomfortable. I know horses don't have nerve endings in their roots like humans, but I still imagine it would be uncomfortable. The only benefit I would see is training a mane to lay on one side or to lie flat.
