Man, I can't wait for my baby to shed. I just *know* there is a pretty horse in there. Right now I swear, some days he looks like the WolfMan, and others, if you drew a cross on his back, he'd be a little chestnut donkey. His sire put so much pretty on his last colts, I can't see how my colt is so hideous.
I second the single shedding blade. I alternate between that, the rubber curry, and the plastic ones. And I just go in there day after day after day after day after day and follow the same time consuming routine. Eventually you will have a sleek and shiney one.
The bad thing is, I am allergic to them, so this time his always miserable for me.
