Okay so I really don't have anything special but my absolute favourite detangling product is the Cowboy Magic Detangling Serum <33 I also swear by unscented baby wipes! I use it for cleaning around the eyes, in the nose and on the face. I even use it for an old horse with diarrhea to clean up his legs.

For those really dirty mucky horses Goop works really well for deep cleaning. Works better then whitening shampoos too!

I don't remember the "recipe" for it off the top of my head but when I go home tonight I'll look it up in my ever so helpful grooming binder. (:

It's something you need almost like air or water. ♥

Well, I love doing tricks with my horse ; )

I taught him how to hug, and working on teaching him how to bow :P

-i swear by lucas paw paw ointment for mud fever/greasy heal... works a treat.
-kondis crystals( used in chooks water) for rain scald.
-vaseline or pawpaw ointment for the corners of their mouth to stop the bit rubbing.
-homemade flyspray- works a treat
-also baby wipes are great for the last minute touch up before entering the show ring. removes most dust and leaves the coat shiny and clean.
-household mits- great for a shiny coat and last minute touch up.
-hairspray over hoof black to keep it on longer.
