    I think there are a few brands that are alright to use but the brand names have escaped me. LOL.
    You can go to a dollar store and buy baby oil for $2 for the same size as show sheen; you even get more out of it because you only use 1/4 - 1/2 cup to ever 2 cups of water.

    You could also use coconut oil, but you don't dilute it just sponge it on. In the summer you can put it on, let your horse out and it acts like a hot oil treatment (just learned that the other day ).

    Easiest way to shed out a horse in the Spring? A small load of sand. It doesn't even have to be spread as the horses will spread it. Horses love to roll in sand which helps with the itchies and helps make the coat shine. A friend had a load bro't for her minis and the sand was still coming out of the box and the ponies were rolling in it.

    So true! Mine leave piles of hair when they roll in the indoor during spring shed!

    You have to be careful with sand colic though, my sister lost her barrel mare this year because of it.
