    Tail help!

    I recently purchased a new mare and her tail is basically one huge matted clump :( any suggestions on what to do with it? As always, thanks in advance for the help!

    Cowboy Magic, and lots of time and work does wonders on matted/tangled manes and tails.

    Start at the bottom, and start working it in. Brush it out extremely slowly, careful not to break or rip out too many hairs. Wide tooth combs usually will work best on tangles.

    ^^Agreed except I usually use baby oil. Almost as effective but a whole heck of a lot cheaper LOL.

    I use the baby oil too, or WD40 will work.

    I use MTG- it smells horrible, but works wonders. Put a little in, work it through with your fingers, try to run your fingers through the mats instead of a comb at first, then as it gets a little better use a comb... You can also use good old human hair conditioner, cholesterol, or cream rinse.
