Reccomendations? Get the hair off!

So Thunder is shedding!!! Yaya!!~ however, all I am doing at the moment is brushing with the curry comb. Are there any other ways to speed along the process besides using a blanket or clipping? TIA!

Yeah they grooming blocks work well but then so does a bit of elbow grease if you can't get one!

I use a shedding blade first to get the majority of the hair off, and then I go to the curry comb. It really seems to work well for me.

Mine are starting to shed too. Thank goodness a sign of spring
I came in the house spitting horse hair yesterday :P I like the slick and easy and also find a large rubber curry in a circular motion helps loosen it up.

I think I am about a month behind everyone as my horses still have plenty of winter coat and no sign of shedding. I really like using a blanket to rub at the dying winter hair and then follow up with a lot of brushing. I really like the slick n easy, as well as just a curry. I also tend to clip my boy as they all shed so near show season here.

When they're shedding in clumps I think a metal shedding blade (1 big loop, not the 2 circle kind) is my favorite. It gets much more hair off then a rubber curry. Once you get most of the bigger clumps I like the slick n easy, I think it kind of grabs the hair a little more so you can get hair that doesn't come off as easily.

I have the 2 circle style curry, but don't like it because it is so hard to clean, and the big loop blade thing works well! I tried the slick block today and love it, except for the fact that it dulls really fast and I actually broke it in half! Lol so Im going to buy another one...luckily they are cheap. His hair was coming off in clumps! It was just flying everywhere lol. The hard parts that aren't shedding as much right now are his tummy and chest. Thanks again for the advice! Ill post pics of when his hair is all gone when that happens , I've never seen him with a summer coat so im super excited!
