when you pick the hoove don't yank no matter how hard it is for it will come at the wrong time and the pick will cut you. L0L

-Vacuums, nothing beats a vacuum.
-Blowdryers excellent for drying a sweaty horse when you don't want to leave them in

Ok
  • I spray the Vetrolin Shine on a soft brush, brush it AFTER the ride so I can kinda see where my saddle was so no slippage! I then go over the whole body with shammie.
  • Use Vet's Choice supilments, it makes the coat SOOOOO Shiny!
  • Brush the mane and tail daily, really helps keep soft and long!

1. I love my shop vac for dusty horses!!!! Curry and vac!
2. I also second the blow dryer!
3. I use ivory soap for body wash.... it is cheap and very gentle.
4. I use a loofa instead of a sponge.. it hangs on stuff and comes in a ton of colors so you know which one you've used for what.
5. For lintiment I mix mint extract and tea tree oil with water.. it helps fight dry skin and fungus too!
6. I take a sanding block to the hooves before applying oil it seems to absorb better.

I think that's it for now..
