Not really grooming but my hubby told me this one today . Apply a 9% bleach water mix when cleaning hooves to prevent thrush.

Hair spray gets hoof black off... but you guys probably knew that.

On that subject... This is sort of off topic. If you bring an empty feed bag to place under your horse's hooves, you can apply the hoof polish much better without getting dirt on it.

I'm sixteen and I play "dress up" with my horse. When I want to hang out with him but its too cruddy to leave the barn I'll sit on a saw-horse or tall bucket in his stall and braid his mane and put little ribbons on it them and fuss with hats and all sorts of fun stuff.. I'll brush him, and braid his tail, (try) to plait it, shine his hooves, all sorts of stuff. Climb on him and lay on him making poses and taking pictures. :) I'm a dork but he enjoys the attention.

I will add my vetwrap, tail wrap thing (not a housold item, but still very useful). Everyone has already seen it by now, if not, see my response to the tail bag thread under the grooming section. It includes pictures and all :)

I looove vet wrapping my horses tail. She looks SO good in orange, so I wrap it up in that, put her cute orange sport boots on and let her out in the arena to run around. She in turn gets excited, shoots her tail in the air and floats. And I take pictures! haha.

But seriously, I love it. Her tail as gotten sooo much longer being wrapped up and protected from the elements.
