    Yes, I've heard that recommended. I've also been told that it's easier to pull a mane after you've exercised your horse, although I forget exactly what the theory was. It's worth a try, though.

    A lot of times people try to pull too many hairs at once and that's why the horse dislikes it. Pull just a few hairs, maybe 10. And yes, only do a little each day.

    Believe me, the SoloComb is worth the price. It looks NOTHING like just cutting it and it is practically fool-proof. All you do is put it on the mane, tease the mane up like you are going to pull, then push the little lever thingy on the top of it. It's simple and it's a lot better than cutting or pulling IMO.
