Mane 42 inches long and tail that drags on the ground, no more! We have done everything we could to keep mane and tail long, but today we gave up. Today I cut 18 inches off her mane and it still hangs down to her shoulder. As far as the tail is concerned, we cut it at 3 inches above the ground. Her hair grows like a weed and it is just to much work to keep it up. Sorry about the rant, but sometime you just have to let it all out. No more long tail or mane.
