I think it is agreed we all love his looks. Just make us a promise to not cut his mane. once he is gentle spend the time it takes to get them tangles out.

No Mane cutting here! I have a bottle of MTG standing by to get those tangles out. I've been dying to brush it out since he got here!

I'm not sure that MTG is meant to help get tangles out-I thought it was for helping w/re-growth. There are other products that would do a better job w/detangling. I'm sure you'll get some great answers if you ask. Some suggestions I've seen have been baby oil, coconut oil, Cowboy Detangler,show Sheen, etc.

Mtg detangles and encourages growth. I discovered this when I had a untouched 3 year old mustange mare who's tail was a ball of tangles. When I finally got her halter broke and she allowed me to brush her tail, I soaked it in MTG and all the tangles almost fell out. I do have coconut oil as well, I could give that a try.

Agreed. I soak my girls feathers in MTG to protect and grow them out. However, it makes them silky soft, as well! No knots at all. :)
