Re: Removing mats
It depends on the mat. When I had my OES, and when she was in full coat, I would spray mats with a watered down hair detangler product (I used Tame but don't believe it's made any longer) and rub it into the mat. Then I'd first try to remove it with a slicker. If the slicker failed I tried a pin bursh, and if that failed I then used a good rat tail metal comb. If all these failed I carefully cut the mat out with a small pair of blunt tipped scissors.
