Another horse with him.

IMO, don't cut it out/off. Soak it in hair conditioner. Run a sharp knife through it lengthwise until you can get a mane comb through it.


If you take the time it takes, it takes less time.

Soak the tangle with mineral oil then untangle it with you hands, then wash and condition, forget the knife it will really screw up a mane. Rio7

See a lot of people spray WD-40 on maines at the horse auctions.

I've done the wd40 and even tried something my wife uses. Anymore though and snags that bad I'd just cut it out. But I don't have show horses.

Usually when mine do that I find a burr or twig in it too.

That's why I suggested above just running a sharp knife THROUGH the knot.
It doesn't cut it OUT, but cuts it APART.
It does not leave a hole in that spot.


Once done, the mane can be combed out.
