Question A dusty winter coat

I have a little pony that has a really thick winter coat. He's black so all the dust that I missed shows up very well. I go through his usually grooming routine ( curry comb > Dandy brush > Body Brush ) and at the end of it all, theres still dust that will not get off. Any suggestions as to how to get that stubborn dust off?

This may sound wierd, but have you tried swiffer cloths? I use them on my TB kind of as a finishing thing, and it picks up all of the dead hair and extra dirt I may have missed....its also really good for his face since he doesn't like me to brush it.

Go to sears or home depot and buy a tiny shop vac, they really do work! Then you can get a brush attachment and you're good to go. It takes the horses a bit to get used to it, but it's a life saver in the winter when you can't bathe :)

Slickneasy block works for me. About $3 or $4 in the tack shop.

All my horses get that in the winter months....what I normally do is I take a damp cloth and wipe it over them...seems to do the trick for my horses.

I either do the damp cloth or the slickneasy works wonders too!

A shop vac was my first thought.
