Here's my idea of a short mohawk:

I love it the way it is now! He looks so attractive! But then again, Fendi is always attractive...

I think the size of it right now makes his neck look a little more svelte and his ears look a little more delicate, whereas when he was totally shaved his ears looked huge and his neck looked a little cresty, which imo I'm not a huge fan of (but some people love that, maybe you're one of them =) ).

You could try it long and if you don't like it you could always just cut it shorter.

I agree, I think it looks really nice at the length it is now, looks good on him. Maybe let his forelock grow back though?

I like the way that it is now. I think it looks very nice and defines his neck well.
How do you plan on keeping it at a certain length? Will you just trim it off the top with scissors or clippers?
(Just curious as I roach my horses mane but prefer it to be grown to a short mohawk like your guy has now. However... I shave mine up the sides and then down the middle so it grows back angled on both sides for a more tapered growth- not just all one even length across the whole top. I find it difficult to keep it this way without re-roaching it and letting it grow back in and do not have steady enough hands to make the perfect appearance if I try to clip it that way.)

You have a beautiful horse though and I'm sure his mane looks good regardless!

I totally agree with what Wallaby said about the ears and neck
And the idea of the forelock, I think he would be nice with a forelock..but he does still look extremely handsome without it =)

I absolutely love him the way it is now. It makes him look distinguished and proud, like an old war horse, carrying his knight into battle. He is one of the few horses who look good with the forelock cut. With it completely shaved, he looked a little naked hehe :D. Right now, he looks so majestic. If you want to change the length, then I think he would be fine with a little longer but not shorter.

Thanks! I was planning on just trimming it a little with the clippers. Thanks for the tip : ]

I would love to see him with a long mohawk, I think it would further the trojan war horse look and make his neck look even more impressive!

I think you should try the long mohawk. He certainly looks fab with the current length, but if the long doesn't suit him, at least you can trim it back to regular length.
