shedding = hairs in my mouth :P

does anyone have any tips or suggestions on how to get shedding hair out quickly whilst avoiding full body clipping? luke is shedding like crazy and i can spend an hour grooming him and there'd still be loose hair coming off! lol yucky...

Shedding blades, & shedding blocks get rid of the hair easily, without clipping! :) I use them all the time, as shedding can be a pain in the butt!

Ride more, worry less.

Shedding blades are AWESOME! And cheap. I'd highly recommend them to anyone. They also help with caked on mud, too.

Furminators work great just don't press down too hard they are blades rather than brushes. We used them all the time grooming dogs and I've used one on my horses, they seem to like them to gets to those itchy spots!

They make Furminators for horses now too, but they're expensive. I just use a large dog one and it works great.
