I bought a horse who essentially had a massive dreadlock as a tail, but all below the end of the bone. I tried combs, conditioners, the lot... however, the only thing that eventually worked was stripping it down with a sharp knife, just methodically slicing through all the mats. Took about six hours over three days. Eventually it got to a state where the conditioner started to have an effect, and I was able to comb it normally. Probably lost 7 or 8 inches of length, but since all the new hairs were going directly into the dreadlock, it wasnīt getting any longer anyway.
Of course, if your boyīs ratsīnest is at the top of his tail, then a knife probably isnīt the best solution... :)
