I've been considering this for a while and for some reason today, I just decided to go with it.
I've always liked the look of a roached mane and have kind of wanted to do it to Jetta for a long time but always thought that I'd never actually do it. I was too chicken.
For some reason, I just threw all those reasons out the window and shaved it all off today. I hate keeping it pulled, Jetta hates having it pulled, I'm probably not going to show that much this summer, it will keep her cool on our trail rides and I think she'll rock the mohawk.
Mid-way through the cut I kind of had a panicked "what am I doing?!" moment, but now that it's done, I actually really like it.
