Oil Sheen Hair Product. Found in the African American hair products aisle of almost any grocery/walgreens type store. It's in a blue bottle and looks like hair spray. Will leave your horses mane and tail shining and will also help detangle. I don't brush my horse's tail out without it!

You're welcome for the link. That's a good idea to have one in each hand lol. It is hard to make the investment if you don't know if it's going to work.

I'll have to get another one for my dog and try that too!

I really like that idea about the hankie with the cookie in it too. My horse always hates it when I try to clean her nose. Haha. As for my favourite grooming tips, I love just brushing my horse in general. She LOVES having her face brushed especially. My favourite part is that little hollow above the eye. I don't know why but I love brushing that. I like to use baby oil in her mane and tail when I brush it. The first day it looks a little greasy but it makes it so soft and shiny!

This isn't really a tip, but I love it when you just use a soft brush and rush the horse forever and their coat gets REALLY REALLY REALLY shiny....So pretty!

I love brushing horse faces too. My husband gets tired of waiting for me. He'll have his horse all saddled up and I'm still brushing mines face Vida will just close her eyes and let me brush all day.

Vida ... I do the same thing! I'm obssessed with making my horse look pretty before I ride!

I put some baby oil onto a brush and brush Bonnys tail with it. Makes the tail soft and shiny and the dirt won't stick to it too easily.

To make black hoofs look clean and shiny, I don't buy any hoof oil. I cut an onion into 2 halfs and rub the juice on the hoofs. They still look really nice after a ride, because the sand won't stick to them as much as it does on hoof oil.

My favorite grooming tools/tricks are Omega Horseshine supplement, GroomaRake (for mane and tail), FurMinator, and a detangler/coat conditioner such as Champion Pepi (in the can) or Vetrolin Shine.
These only supplement my grooming routine though, which consists of currying, followed by a stiff/dandy brush, and a soft brush.

Janine - What an interesting idea with the onion. I'll have to try that sometime.

I use moist wipes to clean the dirt and gunk from around my boys eyes. I got the unscented ones and they don't mind at all. The flies don't seem to be bothering them as much either.
