My horse is a quarter paint gelding and since getting him 3 mos ago, I have worked on his mane and tail some with washing and also mane and tail shampoo. It seems as it is still stringy and tough. No knots or anything apparently and I would have thought the conditioner would soften it up and make combing easy. Washed them both today and put conditioner on after drying and after riding the horse this evening and brushing him down, I checked his mane and tale and it is still not easy to comb or anything and looks stringy instead of like my uncles tennesee walker's mane and tail looks thick and full. Any suggestions?
Any need to get a winter blanket here in SC? I live near charleston and it really doesn't get too too bad, worst is about 30's usually. We have some nights where it may go into the 20s but that's sort of unsual. My uncle said he usually leaves his on the entire winter lol. He told me I should at least get one and put on until the horse gets is winter coat to avoid it getting pneumonia. I know I have seen alot of horses that people don't be putting no darn blanket on and I never hear or see their horses getting sick lol. Any suggestions?
Any of you guys ride your quarter horse with a tennesee walker before? Rode with my uncle today and man several times I had to trot my horse to catch up lol.
