    I like to use the blue listerine. Vinegar actually brings out the natural glo in a horses tail and provides minerals for it. The listerine kills any bacteria that may be there so it works out great. Used 1/3 of each. You want all your portions even. An ol' cowboy told me about it and I thought he was full of it but I tried it on my appy that had no tail (his tail stopped at the end of his tail bone) and now his tail is to the ground.

    Does it keep flys away too? I'm always mixing up concoctions, experimenting with home made fly sprays. It sounds like it would work well for this. I'm writing this down so I can make some, the baby oil is a good addition. It has to smell better and be cheaper than MTG...Thanks!

    I'm definitely going to make that up and use it on my appy too. I would have liked to use the MTG, but it is rather expensive, so I'll try this and see what happens.

    It makes a wonderful fly spray and it doesnt irritate their skin or dry it out! Appys have sensitive skin so its a must to keep in mind. I love it and I wouldnt change for anything.

    I can't recommend Oakwood Shampoos and Conditioners enough! I use their bluing shampoo on my paint and her white is blinding. It's not found many places, but I got some from equinezone.com I think horse.com may carry it as well.
