Sigh...I had to go through four curries before I found one that worked. We started with one of those oval plastic ones that has the very small serrated teeth in rings, and that one didn't seem to do squat to get stuff out of his coat. Then I went to a pair of those Oster curries, with the comfort handles. I LOVED those - they were so easy to hold, I could curry him for ages without my hand or arm getting tired, and they come in 2 "sizes" (one for summer-type coats, one that is sturdier for winter-type coats). But my WB is thin-skinned and complained about both of them, flinched away even if I was going very lightly with them. Finally, we settled on a rubber curry that is palm-sized and shaped kind of like a flower. My hand gets tired trying to hold it, especially in the spring when I'm currying his coat out - he's so thin skinned that there can't be any serious question about using a shedding blade or even a furminator. Sigh.

I got:
Oster "big rubber finger" one for winter coat - the bigger fingers do much better in my horse's wolly mammoth coat

Oster "face brush" - too big for my horse's face and I didn't think it worked that well.

The standard rubber oval - relatively firm - great for my horses summer coat

Small round face curry - probably my horses favorite brush, it is maybe 3 inches around.

Then the rubber jelly mitten thing - works awesome on my horse's sensitive legs.

Round metal curry - for cleaning brushes and breaking up large mud clumps on the winter coat.

One curry--------we all started with one

ETA: forgot a curry LMAO
