To clip or not to clip? (mane, not full body)
When I got Mellow, he had a Mohawk. I've been trying to get his mane to grow out, but he stuck his head through the fence several times and shredded a big section of his mane. I tried to even things out, but he still looks tacky. What should a do?
I'd like him to have a long mane, but he looked kinda cute with it short (you can see pictures on his page).
Oh I love the little mohawk he had going! I would shave it off so it grows in more evenly and it will be a bit spikier. By summer it should be grown out!
BTW I think he is really cute and I like his confo! I would love to see his movement.
What really struck me about him was his trot.
Oh yes! I had my first lesson a few weeks ago, and it was great! I was terribly sore the next day. I plan on taking more, but even with the lesson farm being right down the street from me (I actually rode over there that day), it's next to impossible to get a morning off with a 10 month old. Once I get myself trained, I want to find someone to give Mellow some lessons.
And I buzzed off his mane. It looks SO much better just being one length. From a distance you can't even tell that it's gone.
I'm all for hogging manes. I'm doing that to my riding gelding and my mini gelding as soon as the snow melts this spring!
