At least I think so, haha.

I didn't have my camera with me so I had to use my cell phone. I'll take some better pictures with my camera and post them tomorrow.

I know it's a huge no-no to roach Pasos' manes, but I don't show him and his mane was pathetic for a Paso.

This is what his neck looks like when he uses it:

I think it looks so cute... He looks like a little Trojan warhorse.

I'll probably let it grow out to a little mohawk, like this:

I just love seeing pictures of your horses, they're absolutely beautiful! I think he looks very handsome, by the way, with his roached mane :D

Aww, he looks great! He has the neck to be able to carry the roached look well.

Maybe I'll take the cue from you and gather my courage to roach my gelding - he's rubbed most his mane off leaning through my fences anyways :?

What do you mean you roached it? Is it like pulling the mane? I am not sure I am still learning some of the grooming technology.

Thanks CloudsMystique. I guess that I only cut trim mine. How do you do the roaching? Do you use clippers? I like the pulling though I think better than the roaching. JMO. Does the roaching help the mane come back thicker and more even?

Yeah, I used clippers.

I hate roached manes on thin necks but love them on thick necks, and I hate pulled manes on thick necks but I like them on thin necks.

Oh, and yes, some people roach manes so they can tame the mane as it comes back in.

It helps if you have a mane like this:




But I'm just going to keep his roached.

Cute picture. I might want to see PT's roached. She has a mane like that. Medium neck I think.

I am thinking about roaching my mares and maybe my weanlings. The baby started out as a chesnut, but his mane and tail are growing in kind of dark silver-like. It looks like I dyed it or something.
