Just wondering what makes some horses have real thick (&long) mane and tails? Just got rid of a brrodmare that had more mane than any horse I had ever seen and my mare barely has any. Is it gentic or a deficency of some sort?

Good quesiton, I would like to know the answer to that too....

We have fleabitten gray, he has the longest white mane and tail. His tail drags the ground, I trim a little so that it won't.

Our filly has thick long mane and long tail. We are not real sure of her blood line. I call her a paint or odd-colored, don't know if that is right or not. Her markings are a pretty chestnut and white with black mane and tail. She has ringlets in both mane and tail, and her mane is so massive that it hangs on each side of her neck. Her name is Dancer, but I call her Tina. :D

Our bald face paint, QH, and TB all have fairly short tails and manes.

What makes you bald and the guy down the road have a full head of hair at the same age.

What makes your wife have long dark thick hair, and your sister have thin, blonde hair?

Same theory in horses. Genetics
