How's My Mane Pulling?

Sorry not the best pictures..I was in a hurry. But anyway, this is Kainne's mane a weekish after being pulled..I'm not sure about the shape, does that look okay? Is there anything I should work on?
Around the middle it's a little bit deformed because he has a spiral right over his mane..pretty annoying huh?
But other than that?
I'm not currently showing him, but I just like to have things perfect when I can =P

looks good!
If its going to be plaited i'd say its a bit short, otherwise its very neat!

Oops I did forget to mention that, I do pull it quite a bit shorter than the ideal because it grows so fast and I am so lazy! =P
Thank you though! =)

That is an excellent mane pull :)
Most people end up with longer hairs near the poll and getting shorter as they head towards the withers, but yours is all one length - looks great!

Oy, I would hate to braid your horse, all that hair and a long neck, reminds me of Simply Henry, a horse no one wanted on their list. On the plus it "looks" good, but from a braiders perspective a good mane pull "feels" good. If you run your hand through the mane section by section do you notice thicker and thinner spots? These usually occur at the top of the poll area, getting thicker as you go down and then thinner again, but all manes are different. When you pull next time make sure you are running your hands through the mane over and over again and make the thickness as even as possible throughout. You did a very nice job and I don't want to discourage your lovely work, but you could save yourself some bucks and make a braider happy if you learn this tecnique. Sometimes people don't understand why they have to pay for a pull on a horse thats mane looks fine. But if it is uneven or too thick even if its short, you can't braid it, or you don't want to see the results of trying too, so I know you said your not showing, but if you do you might want to keep this in mind. This might mean scissoring up (not across) to shorten thin areas and really pullng on thick areas to make a uniform mane.
