What is in your Grooming Tote/Box?

I thought I would start a thread to see what everyone has in their grooming tote/box. Please let me know if you like a specific brand of something or absolutely hate something else! How many brushes? What brands? Do you have a different bathing tote/box?

I have a clear Rubbermaid locking lid (smallish and rectangular) bin that I keep my grooming tools in.

I have one of each - broom bristle brush, stiff brush, smooth brush, round rubber curry, metal curry, metal shedding, hoof pick and two combs, and three hair brushes. I have a metal pin brush I had used on my English Springer Spaniels' feathering. I love it for the tail and mane - it is very gentle. I also have a volcano brick.

I keep my sweat squeegee and a round curry with longer soft bristles in a bucket used for shampooing along with some childrens' diapers. I prefer the diapers for bathing and washing the face. (I bathe a lot).

I use Mane & Tail conditioner when bathing and use Cowboy Magic weekly.

I use a horse shampoo; gold something or other from Jeffers Pet. I've been happy with that formula. Don't know if I will change.

I don't have much, but what I have is used often and kept clean.

I keep:
Multiple hoof picks (I always seem to misplace 1!)
2 rubber curries
1 rubber brush with softer nubbins for faces and joints
2 stiff dandy brushes (1 boar bristle, 1 tail hair I think)
2 soft body brushes (1 goat hair, 1 I don't recall, but natural fiber of some sort)
2 sweat scrapers (1 metal to clean my brushes, 1 wood to use on horses)
1 hairbrush
1 big toothed comb
Thinning Shears

I only carry, in a small black rubber bucket, a rubber curry, a small body brush, a small soft brush, a comb, a hoof pick, and a couple rags and electrical tape.

I used to use an old chamber pot. The joke was that nobody would even borrow, much less steal, anything that came out of a chamber pot. When my youngest daughter started grooming professionally, I passed the chamber pot on to her. Great conversation starter.

I buy mid-grade brushes. The ones I have are so old I have no way to know what brands they are. I get brushes that fit comfortably in my hands. I use them longer and more effectively that way.

I have a Kensington tote in the color Hunter that I love. It is the perfect size!
In there I have:
A rubber curry comb
A set of Oster brushes
An additional Oster round brush that has more bristles that a rubber but more bendy
A sweat scraper that has a handle and is curved
Pulling comb
Card with normal TPR on it(just cause)
Heart girth tape(again just cause) that on the other side has hands so you can measure horses approximately
The ultimate hoof pick
Horse treats to keep the ponies happy!
And I think that is it, or at least I can't think of anything else :)

I don't have much. My two horse's share one grooming box. I have a rubber curry, a curry with long rubber fingers, a hard brush, a soft brush, a hoof pick, some thrush medicine, a shedding blade, a sweat scraper, shampoo and conditioner, a little bottle of detangler, rubber bands, and a mane/tail comb.

A black, Dollar Store bucket serves as my everyday grooming caddy and holds:
- 3 curry combs (1 typical rubber oval with hand strap, 2 round with longer teeth for winter hair and/or shedding and I groom with one in each hand)
- plastic bristled dandy brush which works great but is too large for my hand and I often accidentally fling it several feet away while grooming
- super soft-hair body brush which fits my hand perfectly
- One generic hoofpick, plus another with a brush
- Long-handled, wide toothed comb from Walmart's human haircare dept
- small towel
- Ziploc bag of disposable gloves & bottle of iodine for hoof sole
- spray bottle of Healthy Haircare Moisturizer
- spray bottle of Equi-Organics fly spray

I have a small, lidded box of other stuff (sweat scraper, shedding blade, shampoo, polo wraps, hole punch, etc) in my boarding facility's shared tack room, plus a tack box at home.
