oh my god, I have a furminator-like rake for my dogs and cats but I never thought to use it on my horse, that's a really good idea

Here's a link to the horse version. You can also use it on dogs and cats. All the blades are identical except for width. The Furminator company claims the blade should last for the life of the animal. I use my "horse" fuminator on my horse, dog, and two cats. It works wonders.

Expensive, but I ordered one anyway. Friesians are like bears in the winter, I'm still currying off clumps of hair!

The one I bought for my dog was less than 15 from petsmart and, even though it's only six inches or so, I think it will work for Q this winter.

For sure it's my long handled scrub brush for bath time!! No bending over required to reach the hard to reach spots!

Best one ever!
The brush with the long hairs on it for your horse.

I love it! I throw sand on Jetske (on her back, not her head mind you) and brush it off, I just love the effect haha

I don't what this thing is called but it's amazing. It looks a lot like the rubber curry comb but it slips on your hands and is supper quishy. Has these soft rubber hair thing on one side and rigid cones things on the other.
Fantastic for face massages, great for cleaning hard scum, great for simple dust and it is so gentle on the horses.'
Ah! it's called the Jelly scrubber!

I love my jelly scrubber. The kind that has 2 sides you can stick your hand in? The soft side is what I scratch Vidas face with after I take the bit out. She loves it
