That's what I do. I do find the type of rubber makes a difference - my soft rubber one works best. And think of all the muscle definition you will get on your arms while your horse is enjoying its lovely scratch!
But I'm in Australia and most of you are in the States or Europe, right, so your horses will probably get much woolier.
Anyone have any uses for the shed fur? Pillow stuffing etc? Felt? We also have an Irish long-haired donkey who has just shed, and were getting buckets of wooly fur!
Or do you just throw it in your hedges for the birds to line their nests?
