Straighting Mane?

Well the three horses I own (Lea, Lyla, and Petey) always get their mane tangled up! Lea's isn't that bad, she usually only has one knot, but it's an insane knot! On the other two, they have tons and it takes forever to straighten their manes! And tips or ideas? I already use the Mane and Tail spray.

If you do it everyday, you should be able to keep up with it. It will be a lot of work the first time, but once you just do it everyday it'll be easy.

Do you use the Mane and Tail Conditioner Spray, or the Mane and Tail Detangler? I have found that the Detangler works wonders! Cinny's tail is usually pretty bad after only a few hour. I have been spraying the Detangler on every day that I ride/groom and now I can even skip days. It doesn't dry it out like the Mane and Tail Conditioner spray do.

The conditioner says it detangles, but I found the one that actually IS detangler works much much better.

I've used both their detangler spray and their shampoo. Both work great on my mare, who has insanely long, thick mane.

This is what I did/do, because I'm a cheapo. :p
Buy a large spray bottle, I bought mine at Family Dollar but you can buy it pretty much anywhere like Wal Mart or Rite Aid, or any beauty supply stores. You have to make sure it sprays in a fan not straight on because you want it to get the entire area.
Buy a thing of Baby Oil, its like three dollars for a good sized container. Fill the spray bottle about half way with the baby oil. Then fill the bottle to the top with water.
Shake before every use to make sure your not just spraying pure baby oil, because it'll make a really oily mess on your horse's neck. Do this every day for a week then you can do it every other day. It'll make your horse's hair soft, and tangle free. You'll still have to brush it but there will only be a few little knots.

This is my horse's mane after using the Baby Oil/Water mixture. Before it look like dreads but now its nice with no knots. You can also use it on the tail...:

It's something you need almost like air or water. ♥

That's a great idea, I might try that one too but not in summer when he's out a lot, I'm sure the baby oil will make the black fade.
