Question Slick N' Easy block???

Alright, I probably have seen one before and probably even know what it is... but could someone please explain it to me, what its used for, where you buy them... what they look like???

I feel really stupid for not knowing, but I really have no idea what a slick n' easy block is.


Pictures would be nice too!

its a Fiberglass grooming block. That removes horses' loose hair, dust and dirt
Leaves the horse's coat slicker, shinier and well shed-out quickly.

I LIVE by those things! They work SO well. It really helps to minimize shedding, too.

Ride more, worry less.

I LOVE mine! Great during shedding season, and they get SO much more loose hair and dirt than a curry alone.

You use it just like a brush,same direction as the hair grows. :]

What are the results if your horse is already shedded out?

They just grab lots of extra dirt and loose hair that the curry won't get.
