Promising Review: "As a centaur it is very difficult to find hair products that suit my needs as half horse, half human. I am pleased to say that Mane 'n Tail has satisfied all of my bi-species needs. After a long day of galloping through dusty mountain trails or salty beaches my hair can be left dry and abrasive. When I return to the city I have to impress my human dates with something other than my huge bank account. Mane 'n Tail takes my corse horse mane and transforms it into something luxurious. Thanks mane and tail for creating a product tailored to centaurs. We face much market discrimination due to our unique physical and social situation!" –Gary the Centaur
