No. 2 Oil works wonderfully as a deep conditioner when hair is dry and brittle or after body clipping to combat dry, itchy skin and dandruff.
Pour No. 2 Oil into a spray bottle and apply evenly and lightly over the horse’s coat after body clipping. Put a horse blanket over the horse (one you don’t mind getting a bit of oil on) and the horse’s body heat will help the oil deep condition the hair.
No. 2 Oil can be applied heated or just out of the bottle. To heat oil, place in a bucket of hot water. Make sure the oil it is not too hot to burn the horse. Heated oil works best to deep condition the tail.
When conditioning the tail, braid and use a tail bag.
