Is it ideal to have a grooming set for each horse or can they share grooming supplies?

I use my main set for all healthy horses.

I do have one stiff brush, one soft brush, a hoof pick and one mane and tail comb packed away if I have to groom a horse that is ill.

I have 4 grooming kits. One for each horse and a show kit.

The home kits consist of:
Soft and hard body brush
Mane/tail brush
Hoof pick
Rubber and metal curry combs
Sweat scraper
Pulling comb
Solo comb
Hoof dressing
Fly spray

I have individual kits for each horse because they are all different colours, and getting grey hair on the black horse or chestnut hair on the grey horse and so on drives me absolutely bonkers

I have a soft brush, a firmer brush, curry comb, human type hair brush, hoof picks, shedding comb, little hair ties for braids, two tail bags, and a granola bar incase I ever get hungry. hahaha

I use separate brushes for each horse because I am paranoid, but as long as all horses are healthy and have no fungal skin issues, they can be shared.

I'm not even sure I can remember everything I have in there. But I can tell you what I use out of it!

-Winners Circle horsehair with a stiffer bristle middle. Very soft but effective.
- Face brush.
- Hoof pick.

But I have at least three other dandy type brushes, two body curries, a face curry, hoof oil, coppertox, wound dressing, four rolls of vet wrap, pulling comb, mane/tail brush, detangler, waterless shampoo, height/weight tape, and probably a bunch of other crap I can't remember.

Let's see...
-Stiff brush (generic brand)
-Two medium brushes (generic)
-Soft brush (generic)
-Homemade SleekEZ I bought for $1 that I LOVE
-Hard plastic curry (that I don't love)
-Some name brand shedding comb that I haven't used yet and can't remember the name of (got it at a yard sale for $2)
-Oster round mane and tail brush...pretty sure it's Oster...it's heavy-duty, which is needed as my gelding is half draft and inherited the thick, coarse, wavy draft mane and tail
-Hoofpick (just a generic all-metal one that I got for $2)

I also have a plastic container full of treats, our D-ring French link snaffle, and a few other random, miscellaneous items in there.

My grooming tote contains:

- 1 rubber curry
- 1 shedding blade
- 1 hoof pick
- 1 stiff bristle body brush
- 1 medium bristle body brush
- 1 soft bristle body brush
- 1 soft face brush
- 1 extra soft face brush
- 1 main/tail brush
- 1 wide tooth comb
- a bottle of main and tail conditioner (don't know the name of it, but it's a pink concentrate you mix with water)
- 1 bottle of fly spray
- 1 small bottle of MTG that I never use
- bits of hay and horse hair

To ride or not to ride.....What a silly question!
