Orfevre is really quite beautiful. Not a Palomino, but almost has Palomino-like mane and tail. I especially like Orfevre's pedigree, which would be nearly a total outcross for many American (and British) horses. I will never have the money, of course, but my fantasy is to bring quality mares by stallions such as Orfevre and some top German-breds to this country to cross with our top stallions.

He is beautiful but his mane looks horrible.

Japanese horsemen seem like they tend to let the manes grow out on their horses, even when they are in training. Orfevre has always had those flowing locks, I think Gold Ship did too, off the top of my head. I like it.

But, it's not natural because it's straightened out. Typically their manes grow on an angle, almost in a triangle. It's been grown out, but trimmed straight. Ugh.

I don't know, it looks natural to me. I work with Saddlebreds and we leave the manes long. Looks like every mane in our barn.

It looks like Orfevre's mane is pulled, not cut with scissors. Looks fine to me.
