Those burs are awful.
The horses seem to get into them as well.
I'm sorry you had to cut the mane, but it will grow back :)

I spray conditioner and let it soak through the knots, then set aside an hour, or three, to pick through it and untangle the mess.
Sure is a pain in the rear though!

Sigh.... thoughs things are a pain but I have had far worse and never had to cut it. I just pull them out one by one. The worse thing you can do is comb it or put water in it.

Oh and the reason horses get into it is because they love them. Its like a tasty treat to them. Everytime we would pull them out I would just feed it to the horse.

Huh, I didn't know they liked them.... That explains a lot now. Soda was always the dominant one, so he probably chased the others off and ate them all himself... selfish little pig

Oh, man. That's horrible. :( Sorry you had to cut it. Burrs are a pain to get out even when there's only a few. It'll grow back, though.
