My horse Steppin is a big hairy mess. His nickname is the mammoth! Well he has finally started to shed! Yeah! But it took me 1 hour to get all of the shedded hair off of one side of his neck with a curry comb! Does anyone know a faster way to get all that winter fur off??????
Both of the above I have used and they are great. I have used both. My horse isnt super hairy so when it comes to shedding the grooming stone (slick and easy is a brand that makes these) works best for me. Horses with alot of hair like yours sounds like he has would probably be best starting off with a shedding blade. They work wonders. There are two kinds: 1. Single Shedding Blade - Horse.com and 2. Spiral Curry Comb from SmartPak Equine. I like the first shedding blade. It works better then the second circular one. This is an example of a grooming stone, it is a brand that is not slick n easy: Schneider Saddlery. There is one other thing that I have and love. It is called the shed flower. It doesn't seem like it would work because its only plastic but it does. This is what it looks like: Schneider Saddlery. I think what you should try first is the metal shedding blade that is not circular. That would be the best bet for an extremely hairy horse.
I use a circular shedder blade then I curry comb an brush. My gelding gets super furry in the winter and this works well for me. I don't try an get all the hair at once either though. I brush him once a day for a week or two an that usually gets the job done lol
