Okay I admit that I haven't been able to give Mooney a good grooming in a month or so. Only a quick once over with a couple of brushes. Yesterday I went out prepared for the worst, and I got to her tail! When you look at it, it looks fine but inside it is one knot!! I can't get it out very well, because she doesn't really like the be groomed, she prefers a dirt bath daily. Is there anything I can put in it to help lossen up the hairs, her tail use to almost drag on the ground last year I to trim it, when I got her, and don't want to do that again (It reaches her pastern). I also braid it for the winter. Note I don't live anywhere near tack shops, so most horsey products are out of the question. Thanks ahead of time.
