  1. Horse Grooming
    As you can see in the photo BJ has quite a thin mane. Before he was mine, his mane was pulled. The previous owners brushed a bit of it out. I used this horse conditioner which was then kept in overnight. I then brushed out his mane, which caused a lot to be pulled out. It was quite thick...
  2. Horse Talk
    I've recently started leasing an American Paint horse rescue named Josh. Before I was leasing him, one Saturday I wasn't able to make it to the barn and there was a group of volunteers that came to help out at the rescue. When I came back, I found out his tail had been cut short to above his...
  3. Horse Grooming
    A video I made for a way to put up a horse's tail. I made it for a friend and was not planning on going public so it's not the greatest quality. I've been seeing a lot of topics on ways to put up a tail so figured what the heck I'll just post the video. I found the idea online, but have not been...
  4. Dressage
    I'm curious about the guidelines for the aesthetic gear of the horses. I see that the horse's mane is usually braided in a dressage test. Is this required or optional? Are other styles acceptable. If so, what are they. What about the tail? I see that sometimes the horse's tail is set so...
  5. Horse Colors and Genetics
    So I've noticed that my red dun quarter horse mare, Nifty Anne Bar, or Annie, has a (maybe) weird coloring. The hair that grows on the inside of her tail (sounds weird, but that's the only way I know to describe where it's at) is black! She has red hairs surrounding it, which covers it...

    My horses mane is scraggly and uneven. It also feels very rough and is impossible to brush. Her tail isn't great either, but it's not as bad as her mane. I have tried using cowboy magic but it just seems to be a temporary fix. Any products that can make it feel and look better? Thanks!

  8. Horse Grooming
    My horse's mane has done something so odd this year that it has never done before. His mane goes about 3/4 in length down his neck, so not real long. I don't brush it, do try and condition it with 'Healthy Haircare Horse Hair and Skin Moisturizer'. He itches it somewhat but not real bad just...

    Help! I am starting up a tailbag and tack company. I want to create homemade tack but mainly focus on tail bags. I want the name to not be already existing or stolen from some one. If you have any ideas i would greatly appreciate if you would comment your ideas. As a little incentive, if I...
  10. Horse Grooming
    Hello, So I made a basic horse grooming video for my beginner students, so that they can watch and review. It was a lot of fun to make. Now I want to make more grooming videos, such as cleaning the grey horse, or grooming the shedding horse , or grooming for a fuller tail. Something like that...
  11. Horse Grooming
    I was out at the barn today re-braiding my horses mane, when I began to wonder what other people do to care for their horses mane and tails in the winter months! I keep my mares mane and tail braided throughout the winter and every couple of weeks (maybe a bit more often for her mane) I will...

    I have a leopard appaloosa that rolled in red clay/mud and nothing will get the stain out! I have tried quick silver and Blue Frost, am willing to try everything that is safe (don't want to bleach). Thanks!
  13. Horse Grooming
    I've heard of so many people that use this as a conditioner on their horses tails, but how do you use it? What's your routine of using it, how often, do you rinse, etc. I've always been curious cause I've used it on my hair before; I'd usually sleep on it then wash it out in the morning, but I...

    I can make you a custom piece if jewelry if you have extra hair from you horse, either fron mane pulling or tail trim ( it needs to be 7" at least for bracelets) but I can make Tassle charms or earrings with shorter hair. 20% off all memorial pieces the reason I started this hobby was to make...
  15. Horse Grooming
    Ok, so it's a little bit of a long story. My horse's winter blanket has a neck piece attachement that I use. A couple weeks ago I decided I wanted to let my horses mane grow out and get nice and long. I noticed that her mane would get very messy under the neck piece so to help it along I...
  16. Horse Health
    My mini mare has been having poop problems for like 3 years and I have no idea why. The vet couldn't find anything wrong with her, her weight is good, and she is dewormed regularly. She poops normally (formed) and then the rest is all fluid. It squirts out all through her tail and all over her...
  17. Horse Grooming
    I am trying to register my filly as a Friesian Sporthorse and they offer a DNA test which I am doing. But they require 40-50 mane/tail hairs with roots. I am at a loss as to how I am supposed to get that without pulling one hair at a time and hoping the root comes with it. I doubt that's very...
  18. Horse Grooming
    I am starting to show my boy and I don't know whether to cut or pull his mane. I'm a bit wary about pulling it as it is rather thin, and I don't want it to become horribly wispy. I tried braiding it the other day for a comp and it was an absolute disaster, so what should I do? Pros and cons of...
  19. Horse Grooming
    My horse repeatedly kept pulling chucks of her mane out. I finally got tired of it being all different lengths and cut it all about 4 inches long but I want to grow it back out. Most people say MTG works really well but I am confused on how to use it. Could someone with experience in using MTG...

    How can I braid my horses tail? I want to use thread or anything like that. His hairs are really short at his dock.
