Wink Grooming set

Okay so I recently lost most of my brushes when we hauled for a trail ride and my 'friend' left them on the fender of the trailer. needless to say, I'm pretty ill about it.

As picky as I am about brushes, I'm thinking about just going with a grooming set and not spending the time it takes to hunt down individual brushes that will make me happy. I'll do a run down of what I lost under this, and if you know of a set I might like, let me know! I'm thinking about the oster set, but REALLY don't want to shell out $40+ for brushes.. Luckily I had my good hoof pick in my pocket and my good curry under my saddle pad..

I lost a natural some type of animal hair soft brush, a synthetic bristle hard body brush, a mane/tail brush, and a shedding brush type thing. I've had them for years and loved them, but don't know where I got them. :(

[The pony is a palomino, 14 hands.] He has a heart of gold and star power... A good horse has a sparkle, a 'look-at-me' attitude, and good movement. There's a white of the eye. Some people hate it, but it means there's a bit of fire in there.

Over the years I've lost a variety of items, including a soft brush that got lost at a show and a hard brush that mysteriously got replaced with an extremely worn and almost useless hard brush while I was riding one day. I guess I can't be too hard on the world about it because I have opened my tack locker to find things such as a pair of scissors, whip, leather punch, and other things that were not mine. I know darn well that I didn't take them, announced their presence in my locker to the general population, and have no idea how they got there, but I'm getting use out of them!

Anyway, today I finally decided to replace them, and these are what I'm going with:
Horsehair Brush -
Dandy Brush -

If I were you I would buy the cheapest grooming set you can find with all of you required items in it. They may not be exactly what you want, but you can gradually replace them when you come across brushes that you like.

The Oster set is nice, that is what I started out with but I gradually ended up replacing them all with other brushes I found that I liked better. My favorite brushes are from Horse Wellness Store and all though they are pricy they are so worth it.

The love for a horse is just as complicated as the love for another human being...If you never love a horse, you will never understand.
