spraying detangler in mane..

My moms horse flips when we get near his ears but doesnt mind if I put his bridle on when I put my hand between his ears to pull it on.. but when we get anything else close to his ears he freaks. And he has burrs in his mane and everytime I've tried to get close he will jerk his head away! I have gotten a few out of his forelock by slowly picking them out but some are too tangled. I don't want to cut his mane(or tail its to the ground) and his forelock is past his eyes, and his mane is very long also! His last owner tried to roach and it seemed to turn out bad! The other 2 horses being sold with him had roached manes.. so the part they got is now close to the base of his neck. This was the part that they tried to roach last year.

He better then he was, last year we couldnt get close to him or touch his butt, or neck/head. Now we can touch everywhere but his ears..

Like with anything else, you work on it and with him consistently. I wouldn't even worry about spraying at this point, but just getting a comb up there and him comfortable with that and then the next step... you also don't have to spray detangler to get it into his mane...

Theres no way to get to his forelock with a brush/comb theres to many in his forelock..

In my experience, it's easier to pick burrs out one at a time by hand rather than using a comb or brush.

I was going to use detangler to help get them out I rarely use brushes and combs because they pull hair out!

Use your hands to work them out. Put the detangler on your hands. Simple. Then work with the horse.

Put detangler or baby oil on your hands/fingers and work it through. I actually prefer using it on my hands rather from the spray bottle.

What I usually do is going in my horses stall and gradually work on his problem? For example if its biting or getting tense. Talk to them and brush them simultaneously works for me :) good luck

ears, horse
