Although I have yet to find the SOURCE of the culprit, the horses have been coming in for feeding time with burrs MATTED into their forelocks, manes, and even tails. I pick them out each night during dinner, but its almost as if they find it a competition now to get as MUCH tangled in there as possible.
Does anyone have a proven method of getting burrs out gently? Picking out by hand is GREAT, but its snagging and breaking what little hair these horses have. I've tried using a detangler, but that just creates a slippery, matted, and burr-filled mess! HELP!
