ZEBUS EARNT BRIDE UNDUE STEED
My initial read on "needs a good groom" was something to do with hair (not far off from STEED). I looked for common Indian cow types that could be crossword grade, and found ZEBU, which could pluralize to ZEBUS. Then I went and googled "needs a good groom" and immediately BRIDE fell. Eventually ended up grepping U?D?? to get UNDUE, which made E?RN? something like EARNS or so, but that makes the fifth word weird. EARNT sounds like it could more or less fit the tense, let's check the defintion, alright it works. And finally, going back to the hair thought, STEED seems like the best fit.
