    My draft cross mare's mane does this, too. Most of it is on the right but then a little bit about halfway up her crest flips to the right. I figure when we get around to showing I'll just braid it...

    Yes I heard that too, but I don't like being in a big crowd like that - I'll only go if I can get a reserve seat. My friend that I go with is older and has a difficult enough time getting around, so...

    I asked Michael that years ago when I visited and he said they've been studs their whole life so why do a risky surgery at this age ? So they haven't in the past.
