    I've seen many Fjord people who've done their horses mane in creative ways, but I've neve been brave enough to try it!

    Well....it's summer and we have no horse shows until November, so I thought, "Why not?!" Siggy was my canvas tonight [​IMG]

    It looks like someone played chess with his mane!!!!

    Quote:Fjords have a dark stripe that runs from between their ears to the very tip of their tail, and it is surrounded by nearly white hair....so all I did was trim the white really short in 2" sections on both sides.

    Here are a couple other views of his mane so you can see the stripe -

    ...and here is Siggy's dad - you can really see his dorsal strip surrounded by the white:
