Pull it, Braid it, or Leave it?
So I'm taking professional pictures with Henny on Sunday to celebrate his first birthday on the 23rd. Problem is, I don't know what I should do with his mane! It's almost down to the edge of his neck right now. I cut it in October for a halter show and it's grown that much since so he has no problem growing hair.
I'm leaning towards pulling it as I hope to show him this year at a few local shows. I think he can pull it off. I love to nice tidy look of a pulled mane, but I also love his long flowy mane. Decisions, decisions...
Attached is a picture of him at 5 months with a trimmed mane, him now with a running braid, and him now with his mane down. Which would you choose?
Leave it. It's goregous

Haha thank you :) I know that if I do cut it, it will grow right back super fast! You can see how much it's grown in 6 months from the top and bottom photo.
For the photos I would do a nice, long running braid with a ribbon that's his "color", and for the show pull it :)
I say either leave it long & loose.
Oh that's a good idea Sam, I didn't think of putting a ribbon through his hair.
Do a single lattice band.
You band the top as normal, then the next row you band together 2 at a time.
Then you can leave it long. Or if it looks janky, just turn him to the offside so no one can see his hair xD
Oh I like that OVO! I think I'll test that out tomorrow to see how it looks.
It's becoming quite trendy in the breed shows. I'm hoping to show my second yearling like that.
It does look like a good alternative to a short banded mane. Although, I am still leaning towards pulling it. It just looks so mature and professional.
