I know I've seen this on here before but can't find it...and can't quite remember any of the replies;)

We have a show heifer that has curly hair, but it's only on her tail head. Any idea's on getting it to straighten out?

Fog with white vinegar and conditioner, then brush her as you want the hair to sit (this works well for whole body setting). then you can either blow dry her or leave her to dry naturally. A few days of this does wonders.
It's quick, cheap and easy.

I did that on a couple of steers that were curly all over and it worked wonders, 4 days of fogging lasted about two weeks for me and it doesnt hurt the hair if repeated like the straightener that Sullivan's sells.

It's fantastic stuff, my secret weapon actually (not so secret anymore!), but you can't overdo it.
The vinegar works really well to lift any scurf and dandruff.

Yes roughly, but you can alter the mix to suit. I don't use any more than 1/2 conditioner, just play around with the vinegar.

You can use any conditioner. Obviously stock shampoo is designed for cattle, but I just get a cheap one from the supermarket.
One I really like to use is what I use in my own hair- Sunsilk Silky and Straight. It's good stuff!! (Not sure if it's better than anything else but I sorta like to think so- plus, they smell pretty! :p :D )

another question... do you blow it on wet or dry??

well, it's liquid, so when it's blown on will be wet :p it's up to you whether you then comb it through and blow it, or just leave it to air dry. but if you do blow dry, make sure you brush it in real well before doing so.

Carla ... I have a feeling the question might have meant do you start off with the animal wet and then blow it on, or start off with it dry and then blow it on ...

Start with it dry. I don't think I've done it with a wet animal before but I wouldn't think there'd be any problem with it.

This might seem like a dumb question but what exactly is fogging?

A fogger goes on your blower and it....it is like a mist but a fog. lol. It's hard for me to explain anyother way, sorry.
