Oh, how I miss my old gelding's mane and tail. Thick as I've ever seen, yet it never got twisted or knotted. OPOSITE of my mare. My mare is a quarter horse and has a typical mane. Not really course or thick, but the wind does wonders on it. She gets witches stirrups like you wouldn't believe. I plan on keeping her tail braided and in a wrap all winter so that I don't have to worry about it getting dirty, but does anyone have any suggestions as to how to keep her mane from getting knotted up in the wind? She gets them so bad that you can't even brush them out - you have to cut them out. Her mane is just growing back in from when I had to cut one out this summer, and I definitely don't want to have to do that again to her gorgeous locks.
