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.

I've never used one of those shedding blades but was always curious if they really worked. I think I'll get one. Anyone better than the other or are they pretty much all the same?

Echo is shedding like crazy right now too!

I just continue to use my curry comb constantly and brush her every chance I get! LOL!

This is like the one I use. They are fairly cheap and you can get them at any feed store I imagine. They make them like this one

Which I have also, however, it is soooooooooooo hard to get clean and I think it doesnt work as well as the loop.

I use both of the above, but I have a wooden hitching post, so I just whack the round curry against it, and all the hair falls right out.
