Trapper, my horse, rolls ALL the time, especially when it's muddy, so he's covered in mud everytime I get up there. I was talking to a friend of mine who rides with me sometimes, and she told me to get some Cowboy Magic detangler. So after I manage to get all the dirt off Trapper, I just massage it into his coat, and next time I'm up there, it makes it SOOOOO much easier to get the dirt off. Love it! More time to play around that way.
