Its very common for miniatures. Its a way of showing how refined the horse is as with their winter coat you can see its very difficult. Its not meant as a clip for any other reason i.e. work load.. If people want to buy minis in winter they expect it to be head and neck clipped. If the seller doesnt they will find it very hard to sell without. Very normal in the mini world.

That's VERY bizarre. Obviously to show off his head and neck, but the rest of the body looks as if he's wearing a wookie costume

PMSL Precisely, very odd looking clip, I think I would burst out laughing if i saw that pony walking along

Yep its been done for this reason and this reason only!!

Can you imagine going looking at a mini to buy for showing and seeing this....



and imagining it could look like this in summer?



and also imagining it could have a head from this to this?





Therefore reason for clip...

Stinkbomb...I have a potentially daft question for you. Why do you clip off the top bit of his mane? Just curious

Show Arabs, Morgans and Quarters (I think) all have their manes cut like that. Its to show off the throat/top of neck. Ive heard it called 'swaning' as in swans neck.
