    Okay, so is it that stuff in the tubs like Crisco? And isn't truly a liquid, right? By LouAna, I think is one brand?
    Thanks!

I don't want to braid her any more either, as she will just catch them on the trees. I had always worried that the oily nature of the oil would cause their hair to fry in the sun! Guess not!
    Thanks for the semi-hijack. :)
    Thank you :3

    Yeah, I use the Lou-Anna stuff that I find in my local Food Lion, it's like $7 for enough to do several treatments (so one bottle lasts a few months for both my horses) so I consider it worth the money. The stuff freezes easily, makes it difficult to use if the weather is below 75 degrees Otherwise its just like any other oil, but smells nicer.

    I DO CAUTION, I don't know about anyone else, but my bay mare LOVES the taste of coconut oil, so I don't let them in the same pasture together until after it dries.... last thing I want to walk out and see are my mares eating away each others manes after all my hard work

    Oh, that would stink! As it is, my girl used to have what I thought was a beautiful mane, esp. For a 1/2 appy! But I got tired of the bad ends and chopped a few inches off... then we moved and now she is in with trees... now she has a new buddy... yeah don't want them chewing each others manes off! Thanks for the info!
