What should I do with my horse's mane?
He is skinny and it was looking very scraggly, so my trainer told me to pull it to 4 fingers long. I did this and it was a bit uneven, but I did an OK job. For some reason, his mane just won't work short and part of it sticks straight up, and the rest sticks up and then flops to the side or flops over to the other side of his neck. It looks pretty awful. Now it has grown out a bit, but just looks awful. If I pull it again, it will just go all over the place. If I let it grow long, it looks awful and won't work for when I show in the summer. My only other option is either to train it to stay falt (HOW?) or pull it so short that it is a mohawk (Could look cute...). Here are some pictures:
