Mud chunks and manes!

How to get mud chunks out of manes!! after it rains my boys roll!! and how to get a long thick mane and tail!?

Mavs is thick and getting longer about a foot longer then a year ago, his mane is longish but thin!
Harleys tail is thick and long but i want his thicker haha and his mane is short!
Flash has a nice tail but could be thicker and his mane is thick and long!!

Mav gets Biotin, Flax daily, and they all get alfalfa.

The easiest way to get mud chunks out without breaking the hairs is to wet it and wash it out.

I agree with the first poster. Washing out with water would probably be your best bet. I don't know much about getting longer manes, but for tails, I know some who swear that keeping their horses' tail in a sock is a lifesaver!

I braid their tails and undo them once a week to redo it or leave it for a night before redoing it. the horse with the mud chunks isnt a fan of water..

I just use a brush and lot of patience. Sometimes I break them with the curry comb, sometimes I use my fingers to "free" the hair.
Then, a good brush and a lot of time, and everything goes away.
