I spray it with Aussie Leave-in Conditioner and brush it. I'm super happy because Lakota's mane has grown out since I got him and his mohawk(where they cut his bridle path to long)is almost starting to fall to the side. The conditioner leaves the hair really silky and soft and mosturized. I use it in his tail too and it helps to keep the tangles out.
Flash's mane used to refuse to lay on one side - so I would spray daily with Quic Braid and brush it to the side I wanted it on. Now I just brush it daily and spray it maybe once a week or so, and it all stays on the same side. In the summer I wash it with shampoo and conditioner.
I bush it a lot, my horses names are so wirely. Somtimes I put cute little bows and what not into their mane just to look pretty. My mare's mane is finally long enough to do something with but in the summer I cut it because she had so much crap in it and it was to long and hot.
I looked at cowboy magic yestday, it looked good, I want the stain remover for white manes and tails. But as far as manes and tails I stick to mane and tail :)
But I'm going to try mixing conditioner and water, Thank you stabler!!!!
