Some of the people at my barn vacuum their horses. I have not done it to mine. I never really looked that close at the vacuum they use but it does seem to be something like a shop vac.
One thing I have to say is when they get their horses spiffed up they look and feel like pure velvet!!
I do not think my gelding would be to tolerant of it. Maybe if he got used to it. My mare on the other hand would probably do okay.
Something to think about in the future!

My gelding would probably have a heart attack if I came at him with a vacuum.

It sounds like a good idea if your horse will tolerate it. I wish mine would. My dog loves to be vacuumed, though.

Another shop vac user. And it is not really a mini. Not the totally huge model but I think it holds 5 gallons or something like that.

Works great for horses and cob webs, dog puke and ...well just about everything.

Do you know what brand of shopvac? Because I bought one and it barely had any suction.

I've never heard of it either. I can just picture my mare having a heart attack, also, if I came at her with a shop vac hose lol. I don't blame her tho, I don't think I would like it if I didnt know what it was. Are the ones that they make especially for horses expensive??
