Blech I can tell when its done when the horses are outside or in their stalls(our horses never have halters on except to be lead and tied). I hate it. I'll stick to leave it as is unless the horse has an insanely thick mane and forelock and even then its easily fixed with a simple pulling session.

My pony has ONE SINGLE long *** eyelash that I'm dying to pull....I'm just too squeamish to do it.

I don't really have much of an opinion, in that I don't really care what people choose to do, and I don't think the horses care much either. I clip my guy's bridle path to the length of his ear, and that's it. Makes bridling him with his thick mane and our high daily wind knotting things up far easier on me. If it wasn't so windy, I'd probably skip doing that too.

My mare doesn't have any whiskers. I think it might be due to the fact that she has her face stuffed into a roundbale at any given moment of the day. I can't think of any other reason why she wouldn't have them.

my horses bridle would not fit with out a bridle path ! its so thick and grows so fast. i have to pull it pretty much once a week in the summer when im showing, and its not just pulling a few hairs out. its at least 30 minutes of yanking her hair out of her neck, luckily she doesnt mind it. it is soooo thick ! mane and forelock are thicker than a pony's !

My gelding has a one that grows and curls right into his eye. I have to keep it trimmed. Especially when he is wearing a flymask. Poor guy.

Secondly, I like your siggy. Labyrinth!!

Generally just bridle paths. For shows, they get the works.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Sorry, WS. The FEI does not allow bute. Check your facts before you go spewing them.
When I competed at a CDI I had to declare that my horse had scratches and ask for permission to use polysporin on them. The horses have blood drawn to check for drugs and trace amounts of even ulcer meds are grounds for months of disqualification (re Isabelle Werth).

USDF does allow small doses of bute at lower level shows. The purpose is to allow older schoolmasters who may be stiff from trailering and standing in a stall to still comfortably compete.1g of bute the night before competition is not going to mask any lameness and that's what the rule is designed to allow.
Again, check your facts.
