Hi Shana;
I'm actually the person Kelsey referred to in her e-mail about the mane. We had a beautiful 3 y.o. mare who we roached her mane since she had so little left. She had a drop dead gorgeous neck and head. LOL. Needless to say she went 1st premie ster and champion of the keur. When my assistant asked the judges if they'd every judged a horse without a mane, their response was "It's not the mane that makes the horse."

I also had a mare that rubbed her mane last year. She had rubbed it out about a month or so beforehand. Just enough so when we went to keur the new hairs were standing right up straight. She didn't rub it so bad that I clipped it but instead I used the QH method of banding. I did the bands way up high {very thin amounts of hair} with black rubber bands. Then I fluffed the remaining hair up to fill in the blank areas. Worked great.

Good luck!
