I've read about a home-made version of Showsheen -- hair conditioner, baby oil, water and (optional) white vinegar for flies, mixed in a spray bottle. Has anyone tried this or something similar? Thoughts?
I'm using part Mane & Tail conditioner, part Infusium 23 leave-in conditioner and water mixed in a spray bottle. I've only been using it for a month or so, but its working well so far. I've been keeping my gelding's tail braided and it works great when I take his tail down and comb through it. It leaves it soft and detangles great without residue.
Some months ago my mare had some colic problems, and was well dosed w/ mineral oil. Given the amount of time and effort to get that mess out of her tail, I will NEVER put any oil intentionally on that tail again.......lol.
We don't get less brave; we get a bigger sense of self-preservation........
