No concoctions for me. But you can use vitamin E tablets to get hair to grow back (pierce the capsules with a pin and then squeeze the liquid on the spot)....that's all I have =)

Mix together water and rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle. After grooming, spray directly onto your horses' coat (avoid face/eyes!) then rub with clean rags. It makes your horse extra shiny! WARNING: *do not use too much rubbing alcohol because you probably don't want your horse to smell like that!*

One thing that I like to use is a homemade mane and tail detangler. Mix, baby oil (not too much), water, and conditioner, into a spray bottle, add more or less conditioner deppending on the tangles you need to get out, and if you have a thick detangler rinse it out after wards. It saves you money!

Taking old panty hose and cutting them up and use them as a final brush over! Works great for picking up dirt, dust, dander... anything you dont want on the coat.

Many people have sighed for the 'good old days' and regretted the 'passing of the horse,' but today, when only those who like horses own them, it is a far better time for horses. ~C.W. Anderson
