YES. A million times yes. Those things are amazing. They actually make one specifically for horses, the blade is just wider, I think. I used one of the yellow dog ones until I lent it to someone and left it in reach of their horse after they LEFT and decided she wanted to play with it, and completely stomped it and destroyed it. Yeah... that's safe. I don't talk to that person anymore! lol

Anyway, with the furminator = amazing for shedding.

Equal parts listerine, water, vinegar work well for mane and tail growth. Spray on and let it dry then put coconut oil from the base of tail down.

Skin so soft works wonders as a fly repelent plus it helps make your horse shiny.

Burnt motor oil work well on the bottom of horses hooves that are shod to keep the ice and snow from getting packed in.

Baking soda and peroxide work wonders on a white mane and tail.

Thank you all, I just learned a whole bunch of tips and tricks! :) I can't add much but... If you put Hydrogen Peroxide in a spray bottle it makes it easier to apply to wounds and you won't spill it. And also WD-40... (It's always somewhere on the farm!) It works great for burr infested tails! If you spray it in the tail and then take a metal detangler brush and start brushing the burrs will start falling out! Literally! I was shocked! And it will leave your horses tail shiny and a little bit waterproof for a little while!

The best thing I have ever found for conditioning and detangling manes and tails is Pink Lotion, made for African American hair. I use the original, not the light. Works better than Cowboy Magic or any of those silicone products. I'm not sure why, but I think it might be because it has a large amount of Lanolin. I just smear a gob of it in really well, then start brushing out from the bottom. I've also found that using a plastic curry comb on the mane and tail helps prevent breakage... I guess because the teeth are very short and just attack the top few hairs at a time.

Downy/snuggle fabric softner and water in a spray bottle for a great smelling horse and detangled baby soft mane and tail.
