Those of us in the more nothern climes need to be mindful that winter isn't done with us yet. Even tho a horse may have started shedding he still needs the protection of those loose hairs which act as insulation. Our temps dropped last night to -28 deg. C which makes the horses appear frosty. Then a bitter wind from the north was tossed in, just to remind us that Spring isn't here yet.

Its still 31 here in Southern Indiana My guy has started to shed a bit but I have been blanketing heavier to promote shedding and it has worked! I can't wait till it gets warm enough to bathe!

Big Ben, all the blanket is doing is grabbing the loose hairs. It does not make him shed any faster, in fact it may make him too warm which isn't good.

To help get the hair off - and to help shed out - we use a (obviously) shedding blade. Haha! I did one stroke on my horse and you could make a head of hair out if it!!

Altho it's nice one on one time with the horse, I stopped trying to help shed them out a long time ago and leave it up to them. There's a sand riding ring on top of a hill and they use that to get rid of loose hair.

I also just ordered a SleekEZ. I'm excited to see if it works as well as it seems to. I've just been using a metal curry on Henny every day and I've been having to bang the clumps of hair out of it 5-6 times a grooming session.

ETA: I hope it will also stand up to my wooly mammoth pony. Man can he grow some fur. Especially in coastal Texas! You think he'd be living in the mountains somewhere. It's the Welsh in him

The Sleekez does work better than any other shedding tool. If the hair is loose, it will remove it, however because of it's shape, some parts of the horse, it can't grip, the griddle block works good in those areas. The large furminator works the best on the underside of the belly, the smaller furminater only works on my cat. All the rest of the brushes do work but I find they are more labor intensive, one spring I got such sore wrists and hand, I couldn't even grip a pen!
