[RC] show sheen - heidi larson

I spray my gelding's inner back legs and thighs prior to a ride with Show 
Sheen, he gets so sweaty and dirty there and it helps when it's time to 
hose/scrub him off.  Since after a ride he HATES to be messed with much, I 
quickly clean him and let him rest.  The show sheen speeds up the process for 
his sake.

Barn brat.  Hahahhahahaha!!  Just the giggle I needed this
morning (Iraq time.)

The lattice weave is my fave for endurance... looks great
on both of my grey Arabs.  Wife and I swear by Cowboy Magic
in the tube, although there's some Avocado spray stuff
(cannot recall who makes it) that I like to use (in a
pinch.)  We use Show Sheen rarely, and only for a couple

  Subject: [RC] roach the mane!-horrified

  just on a personal note- im horrified that anyone would
purposely roach a mane.
  I have manes down to the shoulders and tails dragging on
the ground. I think its part of the horses appeal, and part
of the fly repellant system.
  I don't have tangle problems because I brush them out
 JUST once a week, not much more, with lots of vetrolin
detangler gel ( in the squeeze bottle) or cowboy magic in
the tube.
  a brushed out conditioned tail don't pick up sticks
and branches.
  I no longer buy show sheen or any other sprays after
using the concentrated stuff.
  I only braid for endurance, or when I know I will be
dumping lots of water on the horse's neck.
  if you can find some little barn brat who can french
braid the whole mane, that works great too.
  we did the "lattice" weave on a white horse I
used to have. I refused to pull the mane  out for a show.
  everyone loved it.

  my forelocks don't seem to want to grow much longer 
than mid eye-ball.
  the "drinkers of the wind" should not look like
polo ponies with brush bottle tails.
  no need to respond- just my opinion!
