you have to try this!

so my friend told me about this great mixture- 1/3 of each: baby oil, human conditioner (any kind) and the original flavor (yellow colored, NOT BLUE) mouth wash... it helps their tails stay nice and shinny and health and keeps others from chewing on tails- I have been using it about a week and love it so I had to share

Anyone else have good home made remedies?

Sounds interesting. Do you rinse it out or leave it in?

I'm not sure I would use bleach on my ponies! But I have heard of conditioner and baby oil. It seems to me that there is alot of uses for mouth wash when it comes to horses.

Putting watered down mouthwash in a spray bottle makes a very quick easy bit cleaner as well - minty fresh!!
