"Pony Tail" is a new line of human grade products - they have an argan oil product that I LOVE to use on Harper's curly tail. It keeps it SHINY and THICK and gorgeous. I also have liked the Main and Tail detangler for those "knottier" days - but I find it leaves it too slippery.

I really like the mane cream. It's tacky when wet, not sticky and it dries without that crunch of other products. I use it in my dog grooming salon for 'training' hair to lay a certain way.

HEMMS the big rat's nest is his tail is bigger than my fist. There is going to be breakage no matter what I use. After working at it for half an hour I'd managed to pull free maybe a dozen hairs. The whole tail isn't involved, mainly the underside. His tail is thick enough for two horses.

Yes, the rats nests are difficult. Hubby's hirse also has a 'Dianna Ross' tail. The best solution I found for working out a particularly bad spot was to actually shampoo first, then let soak in conditioner for a good 15-20. By the time I rinsed, it was as soft as anything and tangle-free. As much as it is the thick, dreadlocked tail causing problems, the debris and gunk is what makes it all hang in there. Even if all you do is bathe the tail in a bucket and hand dry it really well afterward (yay handy PVA towels!!!), it's totally worth the effort!

I recently started using The Trophy Line - Mane-ly Long Hair Polisher The Trophy Line Mane-ly Long Hair Products for Horses, Dogs and People too! I love it. The first time you put it in the hair you use what seems like a lot. Especially if your horse has thick hair but after that a little bit goes a long ways.

I have really liked the Ecolicious Mane & Tail Detangler, but I will say it was really hard to get shipping worked out to the US. I bought through ebay or one of those sites, and shipping costs weren't clear- by the time I got all the billing worked out, I had paid as much for shipping as I had for the product itself. The owner of the company was nice about it and sent me a free sample of something else, but it was sort of a run around.

That said- I do really like how it instantly softens the tail, and the smell is great. I would love to be able to buy it in a store near me to avoid the shipping problems.

That's a bummer! I bought my ecolicious products from eBay too but the shipping was free...

I THINK THE BEST REMEDY FOR DREADLOCKS IS SCISSORS!!!! Just kidding, I like aloe advantage products-look it up. Their spin off on show sheen is okay, but I use Canter show sheen instead because it leaves the mane shiny and soft for about 2 weeks

No, I don't like plaid-- oh, you think that's weird because I am a "farmer", and farmers wear plaid-- well if you looked at my little dirt patch I call a garden, you would think twice
