Ah the product reviews..Yes, yes.. don't worry...it's on my list of things to do! ;oD

I use Rio Vista on my Morgan's mane, it is non silicone, and seems to work okay, though in some weather it can get kind of sticky in the mane. (however, I think this might have something to do with her having -very- fine mane hair).

I live in New England and Anton was at his first N.American keur in our area last year..and they were giving out sample bottle of Mane n Tail..so I've been using that on and off (kind of mixed with the dregs of a Rio Vista bottle actually...waste not, want not!) and it seems to work okay, though it doesn't seem to last very long. With Rio Vista, she can go a few days with her mane in pretty good condition (her mane is a good length, to the bottom of her neck), but with the Mane N Tail the effects are pretty much gone between one day and the next.

So that Shapleys is -supposed- to smell like that? ugh. I went to use some one day but it smelled so foul I didn't dare muck up their hair with it. I'm suprised it doesn't attract critters.

I like the Tea-tree oil ointment for scratches on the Friesians.. it's easy to apply and smells good. I don't know how it compares for effectiveness though. The Friesians I know who have recurring scratches are on a rotating schedule, of a diluted spray from a concentrate (I believe the owners make it up themselves..don't know what's in it), then the tea tree stuff, and then in particularly bad break-outs, they use some ointment medicine for cows udders I believe, it comes in a syringe, and put that directly on the sores.
