moulting time!

Well, don't know about where you are, but here in Australia... its moulting time for horses! They are shedding hair by the bucket!! Anyone got some grooming tips for effectively getting rid of all the loose hairs? Thanks!!!

Shedding blocks or shedding blades work wonders!

Well, not to rub it in or anything.. lol.. But my horses didnt get a winter coat this winter hehe... all those late nights, and early mornings taking and applying rugs, turning off the lights in the stables paided off... some might think its not worth it... But meh, lovely thin, soft, shiny coat all year round - couldnt argue!

But to help you out, nothing works better then a good curry comb all over the body in a circlular motion, followed by a soft brissel brush, brushing in the direction of the hair... Works brillantly!

When the girls had a white welsh mountain pony (a lonnnng time ago now) and Spring came around, we use to hit the brushes, all the white hair that came out, we called it snow... Queensland Snow! Hehe... without the coldness!

If you can spare the extra cash, I used a FURminator. It works wonders.
