Favorite Grooming Tips!

Hey, just wondering what everybody's favorite grooming tips are.

Trapper, my horse, rolls ALL the time, especially when it's muddy, so he's covered in mud everytime I get up there. I was talking to a friend of mine who rides with me sometimes, and she told me to get some Cowboy Magic detangler. So after I manage to get all the dirt off Trapper, I just massage it into his coat, and next time I'm up there, it makes it SOOOOO much easier to get the dirt off. Love it! More time to play around that way.

Not really a grooming tip but I love to groom my horses face. I have a couple of small soft brushes and we both enjoy spending extra time cleaning around her eyes, nose, forehead etc. I keep a hankie in with some horse cookies so it smells good for cleaning up her nose. That way is smells good to her and she will let me give it a good cleaning. I think she really appreciates me cleaning the crud out of her eyes and nose.

deShedding tool

I found the greatest product, it's called the FURminator Equine DeShedding Tool. It is an amazing product to shed out your horse's hair coat. It brings up all the dirt that is next to the horse's skin to the surface and when you brush that dirt off the horse is so shiny. It's awesome, I have to keep telling everyone about it.

I got one for my dog, you wouldn't believe the amount of hair that comes off of him! It really works wonders on him, and I've been thinking about using it on the horses. Now that I know they make a product for them, I'll have to use it :) Thanks Deanna!

After you are done brushing, wet a shammy cloth, squeeze it out well until its just a little damp. Then wipe your horse down with it. It will leave a really nice shine. :)

You're welcome! In a pinch, I bet you can use your dog one on the horse, because I used my horse one for the dog and it worked great. Lol

I actually ordered one

It was about the same price as the one I got for my dog, but the horse one is so much larger!

I can't wait until it gets here so I can use it on them

I bet! I'm sure i'm going to bring both with me (the dog one I have is small. I didn't want to shell out a lot of money to find out it didn't work) and have one in each hand for the horses, and most likely use the horse one on the dog too

I was wondering if they made a equine one of those. Thanks for the link!
