Tamin' the Wild Mane

The top part of Hotrod's mane grew on one side, and the lower half grew on the other..
How do I tame it to one side?
I don't want to cut it, it's to long and pretty

I heard that if you keep it braided for awhile, it should tame it to one side :)
Ive done it and it stayed like that for awhile, and most of it had stayed on that side,but abit of it went and slipped back to the other side ! LOL

Its probably not that hard. Its probably heavy because its soo long. just flip to the other side and try combing it if you can, do this daily. If that dosent work try braiding it.

Braiding or banding will train the mane to one side; just decide which side you want it on, and braid or band to that side.

Haha, thank you!

I'll try everything until I find what works the best on him.
What works on one horse may not work on another

That goes for alot of things!
