Title says it all! I want to see those really long, full manes and tails! This is the closest I've gotten.

Ruger is the dork in the red blanket, he has naturally curly hair. It's a bit longer now, that picture was frm about a year ago. Selena is the bay, before we had t cut her mane (God willing it grows back fast, I MISS IT!) and Barbie is a three year old we used to own. :)

Hmm, I've got some monsterous manes/tails on my place....

I should also mention that these are all natural with absolutely no special care beyond being brushed occasionally.

Forgive the scraggly looking tail, I had just spent like 3 hours combing a huge mat out of it and had broken a fair amount of it off.

Koda
He had worn a section in the middle off the year before and it was just then growing out nicely.

I had also made the mistake of cutting a mat out of his tail when he was still green (I thought that would work better than trying to comb it out on him as he wouldn't stand and I was unsure if he would kick). Here, it had grown out pretty well. This pic was taken with his new owner.

My two year old is still working on getting the last few inches on his tail before it reaches the ground, but it's definitely going to be thick and full. His forelock reaches to the nosepiece of his halter, and his mane is working its way down his shoulder. I think by the time it's grown out, it will reach down to near the point of his shoulder.

I'm sorry, I can't help it! I'm just so proud of him. :wink: You've got quite the treasure yourself, at least there's that. :lol:

Well...We've got the mane part down, but still working on growing out the chewed off tail!


This is the wet Fabio look. Right after a rain that came out of nowhere.
