    I am with SR. No matter what colour a horse is, he could have a few ticklish places, or just not enjoy hard brushing.

    The best way to find out is to brush him with the shedding blade and find out if he likes it or not.

    Just use the weight of the blade with no pressure and drag it. A hacksaw blade, even a used one works well for more sensitive horses as the teeth are finer and much smaller.

    Sour's a chestnut and although she's sensative to being touched, I'm pretty sure that has more to do with the fact that she wasn't handled at all until she was 8 months old, and only to be roped and dragged around after that. She loves getting a good grooming with a rubber curry though, and I've always used shedding blades for her.

    I have noticed that her face is very sensative though. If you leave a halter on her for more than a few hours or if its even remotely tight, the hair begins to rub off. I think it has more to do with her body than her color though.
