He is a very handsome boy and he does look good in this clip. I, too, would let the "mane" area grow longer, it would make it look more like a mane. His clip sorta looks like a modified German clip. I think it looks great on him the way it is, but if you want it to look more like a pony clip, he needs his top knot clipped higher off the ears and the mane grow longer. Coloring it would definitely enhance the look! Ahhh, just jump in on it, you'll love it!! LOL
I did a, what I call, a modified my little pony clip on my girl, Chantel. I didn't want the mane to be really narrow and stand up, so I left it wider (like yours) but long, so it fell over both sides of her neck like a pony's mane does. I left her bracelets and am letting them grow a bit longer, then I am going to shave off the area on the front of the leg so it looks like the furnishings on a Clydesdale horse..lol. If she were a white, I would color her mane.
Here is a pic of Chantel in her pony clip.
