Talking Forelocks Anyone?

I find it really sad that our Appaloosa mare has a longer thicker forelock than Tom.
He just has this hopeless little poof of hair there, it is really funny. Today when I was working him I rubbed his head and it stood straight up like a poofy unicorn horn lmbo! I left it like that the rest of the ride, it was soooo cute.

Behold The Forelock Of DOOOOM!

So lets see those forelocks, the beautiful(so I can be jealous) and the piddly.

Our two young ones don't have really long forelocks, but our lead mare Angel's forelock covers her eyes...we call her 'sexy'

On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.

For an appy, Spirit has a really nice forelock and tail.

Tahoe's is fairly puny but he's got a nice mane and tail:

Cody's is kind of small compared to his thick, drafty mane and amazing tail. When he was younger it seemed bigger. I think he grew but his forelock didn't!

Eve - 2 yr old Clyde/TB filly...this pic is from September and the end is tucked around the far side, it's *almost* to the nose band of her halter now!

Cinder - she just has a tiny poof. She's never really HAD a forelock, more like a little rat tail. LOL it's long-ish, but really scraggly...been using MTG and so far it's kinda working but since she's so dark and fluffy in winter, pics don't capture her hair well!

Java doesn't have a very nice forelock.. His mane is long, but it's really thin. He barely has a tail, too. Poor guy doesn't have much going for him ):

The love for a horse is just as complicated as the love for another human being. If you never love a horse, you will never understand.
