Sam, not so much.
I'm really glad his eye is better, but what is going on with that forelock?
I mean, seriously.
It's not really a forelock. It's more of a wisp. Like the hair on a troll doll.
And it's not as if there's any shortage of hair on this horse. Check out his mane. The right side doesn't look too bad...
...Until you see the other side.
Usually, if a horse's mane spilled on both sides like this, the owner would braid or rubber band the horse's mane over to the correct side (because Sam is ridden English, his should be on the right side). Eventually, the hair would be trained to lay over in a calm, civilized manner.
In this case, fuhgeddaboutit. Won't work. Tried.
Anyway, here's the whole mane. Pretty thick, long, and just barely humoring me (for purposes of this photo) by lying on the right side.
On the other end of the spectrum, more bad news. His tail is long, but not thick. Oh, and don't forget that he's rubbed out a big bald spot near the top.
Nice, Sam. Good thing everything in between is so very pretty.
Outside, and the wild mane is outta control again. But you know, I like it that way. It's part of Sam's image.
Extra carrots for you, Samuel. Don't change a thing.
(except maybe the rub spot on your tail)
