Follow my simple
steps to perfect your ponies hair. Note of caution - read all
the directions before beginning any of my techniques! And please

as always, please be careful not to injure your hooves while trying
this! We don't want cripled ponies in my hospital!

too hot or not. Repeat this step a few times until you really
notice a change in the pony's hair. For Sugerberry it was about
5 or six pull throughs.
Take the pony
to the sink. After each section has been done it is time to rinse
out the conditioner/detangler. Holding the pony upside down, rinse
the hair clean of the conditioner. Pull the hair straight as you
