Even in the horse world people love horses with long flowing manes. Now how do you go about getting a mane long and keeping it healthy at the same time? Mane’s take a lot of upkeep especially if trying to grow them out. The most important part of growing a mane or tail is to keep the horse from pulling the mane out or damaging the hair. It is best to keep manes braided if in small braids and regularly (at least three times a week) however, if not done properly the hair will break off more. Also trimming dead ends off the mane to promote growth is also a good thing to do. Shapley’s makes a product (MTG) that says it makes hair grow about three inches a month. Like people though, there is no replacing good nutrition for hair, hoof, and health. Happy mane growing!
