    Share Your Fav. Grooming Tips

    I thought it would be fun and helpful to share some grooming tips you've learned over the years. What's good, what's bad.

    Here's some I've learned...
    - MTG is awesome!! My tb has the worst tail and MTG has really helped it fill out and grow.
    - Using baby wipes around a horses face really gets it clean and the add some show sheen for some extra shine.
    - Also, baby wipes are good in the winter for getting off the excess dust when it's impossible to give your horse a bath.
    - I've found that brushes the have natural bristles work MUCH better than the ones with synthetic bristles.
    - When I used to ride a white horse I used mouthwash to get the stains out.
    - Mane N' Tail detangler works really well it gets almost any tangle out and leaves a nice shine afterwards.

    That's all I can think of right now but I'd love to hear what tricks you guys use.

    Put baby oil on a rag or a sock and wipe inside of the horses ears to stop the flies from biting

    Really basic, but, when you get the hair off brushes with the metal curry comb. Go somewhere away from your horse, otherwise the wind will carry excess hair back. Before you know it - back where you started! :roll: lol.

    Horses can look alot tidier if you even up the bottom of their tails.
    Also, I second that about the babywipes.

    Hmmmm... brush your horse often with a soft brush ~ brings out the natural oils & makes your horse naturally shiney. Everyone comments on how shiney my horse is & asks what I do. I usually don't go all out in making my horse look nice when doing just day to day stuff b/c she goes right out & rolls. :roll: However, daily brushing & finishing with the softest soft brush you got will make em' real purty! LOL.

    Baby Powder for those white spots when showing!

    Other then that I'm lost.... b/c I just do stuff & don't think much about it. If I think of anything else I'll let you know.

    P.s. Baby wipes... huh, never thougth of that thanks!

    MTG is AMAZING stuff...works wonders! Esp. If your horse has lost fur anywhere (from maybe a scratch or something). :)
    Baby wipes are also good, I have to agree.
    Use conditioner on the horse's mane & tail when washing...it makes it nice & soft!!

    Mine does every single time. Even if I let her dry first b/f letting her out!! GRRRR... but hey I don't mind. It's not like I show or anything. I just ride for fun! If I showed I'd have to keep her in b/c she would never stay clean! LOL

    Miracle Groom, <3
    That stuff is AMAZING.
    My mare is pretty much completely white, so every little dirt spot or grass stain shows up on her coat. And Miracle Groom gets them out really good. I love that stuff. Lol.
