My grandma swears by the detangler gel, but I find it a bit messy to use. It does work well, though, did wonders for her TWH's uber thick mane. Cowboy Magic also makes a green spot remover that works pretty well on white legs, might be helpful if your clyde has the usual white feathers. Cowboy Magic is pricey, but it does work. I just love the ease of a spray on product.
Yikes. I just got back. I didnt know it would be $10 for a tiny tube. I better get another job. Lol
I grabbed some MTG and that new Man N Tail Spray N White. We'll see how it goes =} Does anyone out there know of a cheaper alternative for Cowboy Magic? I saw several other detainglers, but didn't want to waist my money on something that doesn't work.
I like Vetrolin Shine, or Shapely's Magic Sheen. Both double as detanglers and didn't dry out the coat or mane/tail. My next experiment will be Mane n Tail's version of a detangler/shine. I've heard that works well.
Please post back with the results of the Mane n Tail Spray n White! My boy has white legs all around and he can trash them, and I have to ration my Cowboy Magic (It was a Christmas present, ha ha).
I'd have to say, Cowboy Magic is WORTH the pain of paying copious amounts of money. It truly does work wonders. If you apply a small amount each day, the hair will become slick and you can reduce the amount you use each day to barely anything.
I've recently tried a new detangler, Silverado something, and it seems to work well too. I bet if you looked at people detangler you could find something that works.
Cowboy magic detangler is amazing. And it smell dang good. Haha
You don't have to use very much of it for it to do it's job well so that little tube goes a looooong way. I have some that I've had for 3ish years (using it pretty much every day on 12 horses during the summer) and it's still really full.
The shampoo is also amazing, it runs out a little quicker but I've had great success getting my white mare super white (and it wasn't even the stuff formulated for white horses) when normal horse shampoo wasn't cutting it.
Honestly, I use my human detangler on my horse. Its cheaper, smells great, and gets the job done just the same. Just look for one with a silicone base, which is what cowboy magic is. I am using sleek n shine by enjoy right now, it made my own hair too greasy but works fantastically on his mane and especially his tail. :)
