Thinning a Mane?
Ok, so I let Geof's mane get out of control this winter....:lol: It got thick and long, so I snipped the length off with sissors, but now it's really thick! I was thinking of getting some thinning shears. What are your thoughts on them? How do they work? His mane is hard to pull because it's so thick, I would littereally be out there pulling for a day! If you need pics I can try to get some.....

i wouldnt go with any type of thinning scissors !
i usually cut the mane, but leave it a bit longer than i like, then pull pull pull. just try to pull it a bit every day or every other day [like pull out 10 chunks a day]

I agree with the above... Thinning shears are only good for making the bottom look not so chopped off.

yeah thinning shears are not the way to go. I agree with what gypsygirl said. Chop and then pull to make it look more natural. If you have a horse that doesn't like pulling like I do, try the SoloComb. It helps with thinning and pulling at the same time!

O___O 30 dollars?! Eugh. I'll just carefully use scissors if Imma do that

i've seen the solocomb, but how do you use and and how does it work isn't it just a blade?

if your horse doesnt like mane pulling, try standing on a stool so you are above them & pulling the hairs UP not towards yourself, they dont mind it if you do that =]
