    Video! Video! Video!

    I'm chanting because I want to see the grease too. I'm afraid I'm doing things wrong over here.

    If I'm thinking of what Foxhunter is, the "grease" is like a grey coating, if you get it on your hands and rub it with your finger it comes off in tiny roll? I noticed I used to get it all over my hands when I would be massaging the horses at college, as some of the students aren't too thorough on their brushing.

    I think Foxhunter is busy trying to accumulate some grease for us! :)

    Sorry, been busy!

    It is called sebum, or grease.

    I am in the process of trying to make some videos of various tricks and tips when it comes to stable management and turn out.

    Plaiting manes and tails, pulling manes, trimming. It all takes time!

    Observation from someone who's moved from the UK to the US - my horses have virtually no grease on them since we came here - yet in the UK they used to have it by the 'trailer load'
    Is it maybe because the UK is so much wetter?
    In about a 6 weeks time my horses will come in from the field sweating by mid day and get hosed over then stand in the barn with the fans on until it cools down in the evening when they go back out so dust is no longer a problem!!!

    I think it may have to do with moisture. My horses got it when I lived in the Willamette Valley, where it rained 9 months out of the year. Here in the High Desert I have seen very little, and we only get about 9 inches of rain (and rain equivalent) per year.

    Interesting, something that I had never realised with the weather. Probably because it is so wet here!

    I live in the Willamette valley now and have never noticed it while grooming- just a bit on my tack. My horse is also stalled most of the day, so perhaps I'd see more of it if he were exposed to the wet weather more?
