Also if you clip your horse, and you live someplace Hot and Sunny be sure there is a 3 sided cover for the horse to get out of the sun !

Take a rubber/latex glove, wet it, and rub wherever you have extra hair! It even works on those tough belly hairs!

He has a blanket all winter, if it's cold. And okay! Guess it'll be bath on Sunday! 70 is okay right? Or to cold yet?

Aww, c'mon! Why would you want to ruin your chances of looking like this and feeling all that hair crawling around in your underwear and mouth?

To be serious, except for their faces, I don't brush my horses during shedding season. I spent money on a Furminator and it was the smartest thing I did.

After furminating everyone, if you have some extra time, take the shop vac to them and let it suck up all the dander the Furminator loosened up

You will still get some hair in places you don't want but at least you won't look like this cartoon

Aha... I've given up trying to stay hair free during shedding season. No matter what I do, I get hair, everywhere. Always. Even when Im riding all the loose hairs will blow back on me, in my face, in my shirt, all over my clothes, in all the hard to reach places on my saddle. Everywhere you think horse hair could never reach, it WILL reach their. I just use a shedding blade, a Slick n Easy block, and a rubber curry, and if Im feeling adventurous I will use a vaccumm.

I bought a SleekEZ and it is wonderful! Don't use it outside on a windy day because it takes off a lot of hair and it will blow exactly where you don't want it to

Shedding a horse out is a good way to lose weight after consuming considerable amounts of airborne horse hair. It is insoluble fiber and will contribute to a feeling of fullness. Ha ha ha ha ha

I second the furminator! I do dog grooming and got them for grooming them but also have a large one for the horses. You don't have to buy that giant size for horses, I use a size large dog one and it works really well, just a bit more work for me. I find it gets in the smaller areas better though. Plus they are also slightly cheaper. Some people complain that you constantly have to push the button to get the hair off the blade but I find that if you do it quickly and kinda flick it slightly after you swipe it over the horse, most the hair will fall off on its own. I've been doing my guys once a week and its been helping a ton!
