Yep, I finally took the plunge, grabbed the clippers, and gave Salem the horse neck equivalent of a Brazilian. :-) I roached that mane down to the root!
I have to admit that I'm not a fan of the completely-shorn look. Yes, I love not having to deal with that one giant lock that flips to the left side of his neck no.matter.what, but I'm quite anxious for his spike to grown in. Right now, he looks like either a military cadet fresh out of boot camp or a bald old man with a single shock of hair in front. Either way, it's bad.
Hopefully, in a few weeks he'll be rockin' a 'hawk. If it looks anything like this, my little heart will melt:
Love a punk rocker Fjord pony with a mile-high mohawk! Too cute.
Think spiky thoughts!
