Mineral oil is a cheap detangler! I love to dress up my Geldings! Odd enough I love to make hunter bumps/braids, I'm getting quicker at making them!

I never use the sprays that have silicone in them because the silicone makes the hair dry and half of it breaks off. I have a neighbor that has a horse that had a really long mane and she has been using that spray and he has lost like four inches of his mane.

I just detangle their mane and tail with my fingers. And I use MTG on them. I also love to do a running braid on their mane's too. :)

Hate silicone! It messes with human hair, too, and ever since I've gone cone free, there has been a big difference. Shooter has a nice long flowy mane, I love it! But my ocd makes me want to trim it so it looks good and even. ><

Once conditioned, does the hair have to be washed or can it be left in? And, for braiding, I would like to lwave it in, but with his rubbing that might make it worse.

I've always wanted to paint my gelding's hooves sparkly, or really all of him but I can never find any sparkly horse/hoof paint. I have dyed him indigo before though. He was so pretty. My stallion's been dyed hot pink before so he could be a little girl's unicorn for a dress up show both were wash out single wash color safe to use on animals. I just tell people I'm teaching my horses that colors don't have genders so they can be whatever color they want even though they are boys. I love braiding their mains and tails. I try to learn new braids all the time and recently learned to fishtail so that's what is in their tails now. For Christmas they get bells and bows braided in and ribbons in the spring. I go all out with my boys.

Show me a horseman who hasn't fallen and I'll show you a man who has never truly ridden.

Chicksaddlery has some sparkling hoof paint! There's a brand that just chips off after a day so you don't need to rasp it off or use nail polish remover.

There's a woman at my barn who is a hairdresser, so her horse is often found with Jamaican style beaded braids (with crazy colours) and yes, she often has her hooves painted with pink glitter polish. I'm sure you can all just picture a chubby black 14.1hh mare with a peace symbol design turnout sheet, with beaded braids and glittery pink hooves. She is definitely kept clean.. to say the least!
