Shady's mane was an absolute mess; a big ball of tangles and dread locks. She's half Percheron, and while she didn't inherit the size of a draft horse she did inherit the thick heavy mane. Yesterday morning was still breezy, but warm, so I went out there and worked on it for an hour. Thought I'd never get it straightened out, but little by little with the help of some spray detangler, it slowly loosened up and I was able to get the comb through it. Now she looks so nice!
Crystal had her mane detangled too, but her's is kind if thin and limp. Not such a dramatic improvement as Shady's.
