i have read a few other posts and comments about manes and tails but none seem to match what i have...
my chestnut twh has a very thick mane!!! i can't even describe it. so i will try
his mane is long and thick and used to go to his shoulders. i loved the long hair. but it is always knotted at the end of the day. not just little knots. like full out dreads were put in his hair. i couldn't deal with it anymore so i cut most of his off to a medium cut now... not to short. but for next summer how do i keep it from dreads. i brushed it every day and it would still get all knotted and sometimes i had to just cut that area. i even braided his hair once and it was a little better but not much

any ideas

Use cowboy magic detangler when you brush it out, it helps to prevent the tangles as well as removes them. Also makes it shiny and fluffy lol

I use MTG and it works wonders. Although it smells terrible! Sometimes I will even use a human conditioner and it seems to work. Leaves them smelling good too

Just a question.. you didn't actually cut the mane did you? Because if its too thick, when it gets short it will stick out more and more.. you know what, just watching this:
