Unfortunately its almost unheard of (though it does happen sometimes) to see a mule with longer mane that yours has right now, and there really isn't a way to make it grow. Its the donkey gene in them that causes the mane to be so short.

Most owners who show their mules hog their mane, but if you don't do that I would just cut it all even, maybe 2-3" tall.

ive also heard that too but we do have a young female mule that has pretty long mane, do you think his mane is long enough to put in bubbles braids?

Why don't you want to roach it? I always kept my mules roached and thought he looked simply beautiful.

Well actually I wouldn't mind reaching it but my mom refuses to let me. She likes putting in the braids and bands because apparently it looks more "professional":?
