CARE OF MANES AND TAILS Some Valuable Suggestiona for the Improve:::ent la Appearance of the Horae. In response tO an lnqulry aa to I - htly manes and taila. a lead? ing horse autl adera the following > us: t thing to bo looked after. If dlrt ls suffercd to ac cumulate at the roota of the lOBS hair < horse will rub aud destroy lt.

When a horse la rubbiug his tall, which he al ways is when anything la wrong. lbe flrst thing to be dor.e ls to diaouvt r Ihe cause. Then apply plentifully soap and water and the BCMBttoa deacriled. oue part of the dip la SO ' warm BBe har la right a* to turength. Then the mane and tall should be kept clean Ly tbe use of comb and bruab and niora or leas frequent washlng. The long hair ahould be dried ap well aa posalble after each scouriug. and when the dlp solu tlon ia applird there ia no need to slop lt over ao that it runa down or away from the skin where it la needau. It ahould be rubbed in briakly for a few ffiomonu. Tke mane and tall should be handled gently. lt la very easy to tsar out great quantltiea of the long hair with a common currycomB*. and ln that ver>' way much damage ia done. A cur rycomb should never be used on a mane or tall. I se the comb apeclally deaigued for the purpose. Tbe tail ahould never be plaited to make lt look ciinkly. To plait lt la to break off the hair and in tiane to apoil the looka of the LTVX STOCK. "vVhatever yoa may feed your horse. feed Judlcleualy aad regularly. Use aystem.
