Not sure if this is the right place to post this or not. My daughters POA decided to find some cockleburrs to get into her mane. I still haven't figured out where they came from. The neighbor said they'd work their way out but they don't seem to be. Another person told me the only way to get them out is to cut them out. Any ideas? There are 3 other horses in there and not one got so much as a single cockleburr. I think maybe the neighbors threw some over the fence and maybe went and got them back when they saw her with them............
We get those round pokey ones like crazy where I'm at. The only thing that I've found that really works is a patient horse and an even more patient owner. Over the fall months I'm pulling out at least 50 to 60 of those things out of his forelock and mane every dang morning, Milo's gotten to the point where he just rests his head on his stall door and takes a snooze until I'm done.
This may be a stupid question, but here it goes. Haha
Will the baby oil have to be washed out right away? It probably will be slimey, right? I would imagine it's too cold for a bath right now. Lows in the single digits most nights and highs in the 20-30's. Sorry, I'm relatively new to horses.
I have used baby oil, show sheen, Cowboy Magic detangler is great, WD 40 works but it does dry out the hair, so you have to moisturize after. I don't wash the oils out, just soft brush them all through the tail when I have finished.
You shouldn't have to cut them out, I've dealt with some pretty bad ones, and I second the patient horse patient owner comment
Unfortunately I have had plenty of practice, and I can turn this
