Manes, let's see them!
I'm in the (very long) process of growing out my horse's mane after years of pulling, cutting and banding. Last weekend I went to a clinic where there was a mare with the most gorgeous, long, healthy mane I've ever seen in person.

So I want to know.. How long is your horse's mane? Post pictures if you want to!

Here's the mare I was talking about :-)

And my gelding's pathetic little mane :lol::

Here's my boy Dusty and his long mane, before I trimmed the ends. His neck is slightly curved to the right in this pic, so it doesn't show as well as it looks in person. (And his winter coat was starting to shed out--he's darker and more dappley now.)

When i bought my arabian mare, Chico (i know it's a boy's name but i just never got around to changing it lol) she had her mane pulled & thinned short for english riding. I personally love long manes so i let it grow out & a year later, here are the results (i've had her for 2 years but the 2nd pic was taken after only a year).
My new mare, Molly had the same thing done to her mane so i can't wait for her's to grow out as well!

My Thoroughbreds have pulled manes:

My Paso Fino has a natural mane that I've been growing out with MTG:

As does my mini mare...

Sunny's is wimpy hehe, but I don't have any pics of it.

I personally like the 'do's on my little 15lb mini newborn (pinto) and my 10wk old mini colt :)
