Yep! WD-40 will do it!! :) I had to use it on my daughter's hair ( she dreadlocked at the base of her neck) :roll: Curly hair & an 11yr old :roll: I coulda killed her.. lol ANY-Whoooo It'll work!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

IWe have used Aussie 3 minute miracle.
Have not tried PAM on the hair, but it does great on the hooves for show days (apply once the paint has dried. Keeps the dirt from sticking).

Vida You remember to be at the side of vida when you start spraying that pam as she will think its a snake then you will think you got hit by a truck , Them rear feet sure pack a jolt to the mid section when they do it FROM EXPERIENCE but not with pam

I use coconut oil or olive oil. I've used baby oil in the past, but it doesn't moisturize like these do. I do that once a week, and then throughout the week I just spray w/ watered down conditioner.

well it does smell good! and you know it makes a great deep conditioner for my hair, so I figured it would work well for the horses :)

Ok, I know this sounds crazy, (it probably is!) but it's worked really well. In a spray-bottle, mix equal parts water, white vinegar, and conditioner. Shake well, spray on tail, and brush out as gently but efficiently as possible. I've started doing this every other day on my horse's tail, and it's working nicely. (Though the regular brushing probably has a lot to do with it)

This was a recipe from this month's Horse & Rider magazine.

A horse in hand is worth a herd in the hills.

Hey guys thought I would share this tip. an elderly fellow had 2 black morgans i used to go over there all the time drink lemonade and groom their horses.
He used Listerine mouthwash,, becuase it smells good i guess... he never did tell me why mouthwash,
second ingredient baby oil!!!

He used it on his horses everday when he groomed them, its equl parts oil and mouth wash i used it on one of my horses who was scratching his tail on the fences, this stuff actually worked... the flys also dident bother him....

Baby oil works great, plus leaves a nice shine and smell. :)

A horse belongs in a stable not on a table!
