I went to the barn yesterday. After scraping a truck load of mud off of her I took Annie for a walk. That isn't Annie in the photo but it gives you an idea. Her mane was a dirt ball tangled in burrs! She's usually a fastidious mare. I think she ran into the wrong crowd, went to some dodgy clubs and rolled in the muck and mire.
Grooming tip: As I was picking the burrs out of her mane, hair by muddy hair, a barn buddy walked by and said "Show Sheen! Use Show Sheen and they will fall right out." Damn! I ran to my tack cubby, grabbed the Show Sheen and with a good spray those burrs did come out easier. Annie's mane isn't real thick to begin with so I was grateful for the tip!
