Favorite grooming tool?

What is your favorite grooming tool, and why? Mine would most definitely. Have to be the infamous...........JELLY SCRUBBER!!!! Haha. :) It is my lifesaver during mud-filled winters. It works waaaay better than a shedding blade, IMO, and it's more comfortable for the horse, as far as I can tell. It also gets off dried mud well if it's not too caky. :]]] How about you guys? :)

My favorite would have to be either the Curry Comb or the Slick'N'Easy.... I love the Curry in the winter with all of the mud and it works great in the summer to pull off the fuzz, but the Slick'N'Easy is great in the summer....Hmm guess I'd have to go with the Curry Comb

I don't know if I could live w/o the Oster mane and tail brush. I have one for each of my boys . My Dun has a very thick mane and it helps to get all the knots and tangles out ! I don't think the other mane/tail combs work as well.

Mane Thinner!

My horse has a super thick, long mane and the Mane Thinner saved me! Everyday I would have to brush out her mane which would take me close to 15 minutes because she would always get "witches curls" in it. I soon had my mares wild mane tamed so it lay fairly nicely and didn't get tangled as badly everyday. The slick n'easy is also a favorite of mine.

My second favorite would have to be the handy dandy hoof pick though....

Well, I've simply fallen in love with my wide+long-toothed black rubber circular curry..very heavy duty built with big flexible spikes with rounded ends..it really gets under that fur, whether it's a thick winter coat or sleek summer coat, and pulls out all of that dirt and hair. And my horse LOVES it!! He practically knocks me over leaning into it with his head all cocked up the side and eyes half closed, hahaha
But it really depends on what time of year and what horse I'm working with..my previous horse did best with a normal curry..my mom's horse does great with a Slick N' Easy..

Then when I have muddy horses in the winter you can't beat my little plastic flower comb..has little pointy teeth like a metal shedding blade all around in the shape of a flower but since it's a little softer and gentler than that metal and it works great to get that mud out. =)

Slick 'n' Easy grooming block :) My life saver!
Or probably a thinning comb. Instead of pulling a mane, I think it has like a little razor on it, which makes it more comfortable for the horse.

I really like the Oster mane & tail combs as well. I also like like the greenhawk brand white body brush I have. It makes the coat nice and soft and shiny =).

My multi-use brush. It has lots of brushes on it....One side is curry, another is face brush, one is a body brush, and the last side is a slicker. It's a pain to hold on to but I can use it for everything. It's actually a dog brush, LOL :)
