You know how the top half of a horses mane is thicker than the bottom half?
Why is that?
It’s been on my mind for a while and I can’t word it properly enough on google to get an answer.
The people I’ve asked so far think it’s related to being rugged, like the rug maybe rubbing the base of the mane. Thing is, a horse that doesn’t get rugged still has its mane like that, and same with foals who haven’t been rugged at all yet.
For some horses it’s almost in thirds, so the mane is only thick at the top third near the poll but the rest is all random lengths, and some parts grow but other parts never do.
Is there any sort of reason why it’s like that or is this one of those “why are you wondering about that” sorts of things?’
Is there a reason for it that’s to do with how horses lived before being domesticated?
Is it because of rugging? Like an evolutionary thing that happen from the time horses first got rugged? Is it just because? Just like how some horses have thin coats and some have thick, same for tails.
