Honestly, that was the reason he told me.

Couldn't have been that the horse had developed a poor work ethic and sour attitude because a kid who didn't know what they were doing tried to train him. Nope, couldn't have been that. It was that his hair was too long.

^Oh dear! I hope he bit the hand that cut his hair Lilah!!

ApuetsoT, I meant your haircut probably gave him (another) reason to be grumpy!

Ha, lol. Well, it did make him look pretty fierce after. I actually had someone come up to me and compliment it! They were clearly not horsey.

I've always seen Clydesdales with long forelocks. I think it looks nice.
He's beautiful, I say don't cut it. :) No need to. Love it! He can rock it!

Another vote here for “not too long” – she’s a Clyde, they’re supposed to be hairy!

My haflinger gelding has a silly, poofy-looking mane right now because somebody, bless their hearts, tried to pull his mane in English hunter fashion before I got him. The rest of his herd have long manes and forelocks in typical Haffie fashion. Some of them look like golden fairy-princess horses with how long their manes and tails are, and we ride and drive them like that! I think the only time we braid their manes out of the way is when we’re going to shows, and only then because it looks nicer.

Just thought I'd check in and say thanks again for all of you who supported my Clydesdale Delilah's long locks. She is still rocking her Pantene look, and it doesn't hamper her at all - she is making huge strides (no pun intended) in our lessons - actually, we both are!
