View Full Version : Mane help!

Feb. 26, 2012, 06:34 PM
Hello grooming experts!

My mare has an extremely poufy mane that will not lie flat. I used a thinning blade yesterday to bring it up to the length I like (~ 4-5 inches) and it just poufs out from her crest.

Does anyone have any tricks to help get a mane to lie flat? She loves to rub, so braids in for a long period of time wouldn't work unless I want her mane to be patchy.

I'm going to be conditioning her mane about 2x a week, but is there anything else I should be doing?

I like braids, but I wouldn't leave them in for a long time. The most I do is usually two days and then they come out. I've had a lot of success with those fitted hoodies /sleazies. I also have a grey so it helps to keep him clean as well.
