Please Help, lots of Hair.

Anyone have good ideas on how to get rid of a really bad winter coat? I really don't want to buzz her this year if I don't have to. Not sure if there are any tricks out there or not.

Currying helps a ton. However, don't take too much of it away (unless she has a blanket) because then she'll freeze.

Brush brush brush I know its a pain. I just ordered a shedding blade, hasn't arrived yet but several members here recommended them so I'm giving it a go. I ordered a double blade one hope that makes it go faster than the single.

I have a double bladed shedding blade and I wouldn't trade it for a brand new saddle! It is so much faster, I LOVE it. 8)

Flax seed helps to get rid of winter hair, but be carful it also cause weight gain.

Grooming blocks. They are basically only good for shedding, but they do a bang up job.

Grooming blocks are good, but brushing is definitely the best option...currying really does the trick!
