I use both, and love them as well.

The marigold spray, I actually heard in certain areas and climates, it actually mildly repels insects. Not sure how that works, or why, but I didn't notice an attraction, or notice any repelling, so it's just a nice conditioner for me.

Good, so I'm not alone.

It's a good way to remind my to clean and spray my clippers often!

Well if it has marigold in it, that would be why it would repel insects. Marigods can be used to keep bugs out of your garden. I haven't tried it but I think I might have to go get some.

Well I just had a DUHHHHH Moment!! I would never have thought of using a grill brick! I just went and looked in my tack box at the 2 stones I have. HOW did I miss this?
I am so cheap the Hubby nicknamed me chicken because I cheap so much. I make my own laundry soap, horse shampoo, dog shampoo, fly repellents, flea repellents and loads of other stuff, but this I missed? The whole time I have been trying to figure out what those expensive stones reminded me of!

I miss you Rascal. Every day, all day.

What a GREAT idea... I thought those looked familiar, and should have checked into that on my own by now! Someone on another thread was talking about worrying about getting her horse to shed his thick winter fluff, and I remembered that these worked GREAT for me back in 1992 the last time I owned a horse (until now)! I'm going to have to make a supply run to the Sysco in Minneapolis before spring!

I've used both and loved them! They work really well! Also try Mane and Tail (the company), their detangler is a miracle, and works like a charm.

I LOVE Eqyss products, especially their MicroTek products and Survivor Detangler and Shine, man that stuff is AMAZING!

@Sky, yes the 3 pak is the same as the brick, just costs more. You can buy a small hacksaw in the hardware aisle at Walmart, you'll be amazed how much money you save if you can buy the big grill brick and just slice off bits of it like a loaf of bread, when you need a fresh Slicker stone.

The Botfly is the Oklahoma state bird I think, and that's pretty much what I use the stones for. I wait until we've had a hard freeze, take my brick and where ever I see those tell tale gold spots that tell me there's bot eggs on the horse, I rub the stone over the spot and take the eggs off MUCH faster than with a bot knife.

Botknife is garbage compared to a griddle block.

I've been using the Slick N Easy block for years and years now. Originally my vet told me to use it to remove scabs and crustys. But now its one of my main tools I use.

I also have a smooth coat jack russell terrorist - and he has that wonderful hair that weaves itself into everything you may own. Specially anything made out of black.

Normal dog brushes and combs hurt him and don't take out that undercoat or loose hairs. But the slick n easy block takes everything off of him. He loves the feeling also, cuz its not comb heads scratching him.
