    Be glad you don't have horses with feathering. I have two Curly mares and they both have curly manes and tails, as well as their signature 'foot beards'. I gave one of the mares a bath a few days ago and brushed through the feathering only to find a few burrs hiding in there! It doesn't help that the feathering is very curly, so it just welcomes all sorts of debris. Usually when I get a new horse the first thing on my agenda is getting all the mats and burrs out of their hair. Some love the attention; but my third horse, Gypsy, no one could get near her for the first week. After that I was the only one who could touch her. Sometimes when all of my horses find the only bush with burrs on them in the entire pasture people need to remind me why I love horses. XD

    Luckily I haven't had a burr issue in a couple years.

    The inside boarders at my barn are having a time with it though since their horses are turned out in a pasture with a bunch of burrs. My horse is on pasture board in a separate pasture without burrs. Lucky me!
