Getting horse to look good when people come to see her....

Okay so you guys know im selling my horse. Well she is in the process of growing a new coat that is shiner and more full of life. Its looking alot better then her old coat that's dull and has no life. Lol so what do I do to keep her looking spiffy and nice for when potential buyers come out to see her?

I have this jelly mitt-type brush w/ nubs on one side (for the body) and very gentle, closely packed fingers on the other side (for the face). Looks like this ~

I rub them down really good w/ the nubby side for 10-15 minutes and it gets them really clean and shiny. It lifts all the dirt, dead skin, shedding hair, etc., to the surface and gives the coat a nice luster when followed w/ a medium bristle brush and then a soft brush.

If she is shedding a lot I'd say clip her, but it might take a while after to get her nice and shiny so just whip out the shedding blade and the grooming block and do that for a while. I know when I was looking at horses I wanted to see a nicely presented one. And yes, a ton of grooming.

IF you can, trim up the ears, muzzle, and bridle path, Make her face look purdy, and then groom groom grrom polish and groom. B

Yeah, cleaning up the ears, muzzle and bridle path is a very good idea. When I was showing my pony I'd groom her up as if I was taking her to an A show.
