Yes, that shaved part right where the bridle sits on the poll.
Not easy to do, as we’re in the ugliest stage now, the mane sticking up everywhere, refusing to lay down and blend in.
Jaworzno didn’t come with the 4-6 inch long traditional Arabian bridle path, but did have a very neat and tidy 2 incher shaved into the mane. A sucker for thick forelocks, I’m growing it out. Every barn has their own philosophy on the necessity of the bridle path. I think they’re tidy. But a pet peeve is the half-inch stubble. Not going to happen here!
