They are cheap to buy so it is not only energy saving but cost effective too.
That wont rip up the hair though, right?

To detangle, almost anything that is oil based would work. I sprayed our horses with an oil based flyspray and it also helped detangling the tail.

For dry mud on their legs, we use a round metal curry. If the mud doesn't come loose, I just press my fingernail in the middle of the clump to break it up then back to the curry.

I am in love with Cowboy Magic detangler. I have a palomino qh with a thick, full mane and tail. This stuff works like a charm, and smells amazing also.

NEVER try to get mud off wet. I swear to goodness that the stuff is God's bane on horse owners. Let it dry, and use your fingernails through a rag, and then a curry or a stiff brush. My white Arab is addicted to rolling in mud, so I've learned to just take a deep breath when I see mud. 😊

Totally jealous of the whole feet picking-up "problem". That is NOT a problem, lol!!! 😊😊😊😊

Haha Im so go against the grain

I would shampoo and condition the mane - and then use siclon spray or show sheen or it for the initial detangle... Id use my fingers to comb then a mane comb brush starting and the bottom and finally bang it so its blunt cut

Get mud of the legs - save your self some time and wash it off with a sponge... much easier... unless its just normal mud then Id first use a plstic curry comb then a normal body brush
