thinning the thickest mane.
 
any tricks beside pulling constantly?

Trade your horse's mane for mine?? :-)

Heh. I just hack mine off with scissors every couple weeks (when it gets to long or thick).

More pulling? :-P

Could you use thinning shears like they use for humans??

rraylutz210 09-09-2010 02:38 PM

you can use thinning shears, however it leaves split ends and uneven hairs. pulling seems to be the only way unfortunately.

I always thought pulling left uneven hairs to. could you not cut up ways under neath it then just level it out on the top layer?
