mane on the left or right - which is 'proper'?
 
there was a thread on this once but i cant find it. what is the 'proper' side for the mane to be on? i always thought it was the right but ive seen a lot with it on the left and my new horses is on the left as well. so yeah, which is 'right'?

On the right :D but i guess it might change between countries, like the side of the road :lol:
Then again, a handful of top showing people plait on the left :? mainly on the right though :D

If you roach it you won't have to worry about it (only kidding but Dumas would love it).

It used to be considered proper form to have it on the right but today it doesn't matter. I would simply work with it in the way it falls naturally. I have one that falls to the right, one that falls to the left, and a pony that splits down the middle :roll:

roach it!!! :shock: her mane is sooo pretty. it hangs below her neck. there is no way i could ever do anything to it lol but yes dumas would like that :wink:

so basically these days it doesnt really matter which side its on? then it shall stay where it is :D

The right side

The right, but it really depends on where it falls. :D

I don't know what is proper, but just like parts in hair, some fall naturally to the right or left.

This is really a stupid question, but you mean the horse's right, right? Lol. It would be my left. Looking at her straight on ... :???:
