Dream - Sounds like a good product! Can you also get it in a smaller dose for only two horses?

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

So, I totally bought that 'Pink' aerosol spray tonight at WalMart and I freakin' LOVE it! I sprayed a tiny bit on my mare's mane and tail and it makes her hair so gorgeous, plus it was so easy to brush. I don't even know the last time her tail was brushed and I've never been done brushing a horse's tail so fast in my life. Thank you so much for referring me to it. I'll NEVER use a horse detangler/sheen product again.

There's also an olive oil spray in the ethnic aisle that works wonders. I first started using the pink oil and the olive oil on the show cattle, and figured it would be good on some horses. It works!

You can buy Kolestral at Sally's Beauty Supply for $26/gallon and even with heavy showing of 4-6 horses in my string, it still lasts me more than a year.
My friend shows QHs and he recomended Kolesteral to me and my really is amazing.

I'm going to see if the Wal-Mart up here has it.

Here's a suggestion for those just using it. Post a before and after picture. I'd like to see the results (plus I just like looking at your pretty horses )

Sometimes I wrestle with my demons. Sometimes we just snuggle.

Thank you so much for this idea! I never even thought of using ethnic hair products on horse hair. I will definitely be using it from now on! Its so much less expensive. Thanks again.

Wow, I hadnt thought about the ethnic products! I'd been looking for something to control my boys' tails. Sundance needs more of a wash to get rid of the staining in his tail. But, Cassidy's tail gets kinky and wavy and is miserable to brush out. :(
