It promotes hair growth and it makes their mane and tails nice and soft.

your welcome!

Also, make sure you wear gloves! I find the smell doesn't stay for too long when you wear gloves.

My gelding's mane and tail hair is course and kinky. I have found that conditioner containing cholesterol works well. I buy mine in a small tub in the ethnic hair section of the local pharmacy. No specific brand, I just look for one that says CHOLESTEROL in large letters across the front!

Sometimes it's because of the breed that you have variations in the tail like that. I know Cobalt's has got a pretty thick mane and tail but I also know its a breed characteristic. Something that you could do is wash and condition the mane and tail then add some conditioner and wraps his tail up.

Unfortunately tho, drafts along with a few other breeds are known for having full and thick tails. I think it's actually a great horse characteristic but to each our own I guess :) hope it helped.
