I opt for the WD40, too. Many stories of success in detangling.

Words of caution--anything you use that is in spray form, first spray into your hand or fingers, then apply. Head or eye area such as forelock isn't the best place to spray anything--he may not like the sound, feel, or you could risk getting some in his eyes!

Handsome fellow--congratulations and have fun!!!!

Much thanks to you all on the great suggestions, and the wonderful compliments on War. I can't wait to ride him, but I am going to take it slowly.

Not that close to the eyes please!

Try Johnson's no more tears. Horse stuff is good - but spendy!

First of all, I would like to both congratulate you on re-entering the horse world and secondly congratulate you on having such a lovely boy.

Secondly I would recommend that you use baby oil to loosen up the matts and gently work them out over a period of time.

Thank you all so much. I think I'm going to try and work on him a little this weekend when the weather changes a little for the better around here.

I bet I am not the only one that was expecting burrs and a forelock that looked hard and stiff. I kept looking at your pictures because I thought maybe some were before she got matted up and then my next thought was I bet the wrong pictures were posted because this forelock looks pretty darn good. Not sure why cutting it off would even be considered.

As I said in an earlier post, at the roots of his forelock there are two mats that are the size of your thumbs. I failed to post a close up picture of the area referenced, therefore it was my mistake. From a distance his forelock looks real nice. But when I pull it up, I can see those two huge mats. Again, my mistake for not posting close up pictures. Thank you to all who gave the advice I was seeking........

Mane 'n Tail has a whole line of products that you can use on horses or humans. I use the same shampoo, conditioner, detangler, and hair straightener as my horses lol xD. The detangler might work....it works pretty well on my and my horses' hair lol
