Some horses at my riding school have massive dreadlocks in their manes! Are there any techniques to get them all out in a reasonable time? I want to help, but brushing will take forever!
my boy gets dreadlocks every night if i dont have his hair braided. i call them witches knots. i use some gel type detangler, either cowboy magic or equuis survivor. most feed stores have cowboy magic. i use that and show sheen spray. it gets them out pretty easy. i use a plastic bristle brush or comb.
Oh okay jensand305 !
Anyone else? Any 'natural' remedies?
I would use a comb before a brush, sometimes if i use a brush it makes the ends yucky, a comb will help keep the hair strands intact. I really like cowboy magic detangler.
cowboy magic is a miracle worker!! :)
Lots of soap and brushing.
cowboy magic, OR main and tail detangler!
The problem is that just because you brush them out, that doesn't mean they'll stay brushed out. Like me and Jen, if our horse's manes aren't braided we've got major tangling issues. Maybe after you brush them out give their manes a trim to try to prevent future tangling?
get some detangle spray, the human stuff is fine. that works although you have to brush too
baby oil works really well too.
