-Long stiff brush
-Short stiff brush

-Jelly scrub
-Hoof Clippers
-Wahl mini clippers

Way too much. I actually have 3 grooming buckets/bags because I keep saying "Okay, I'll put JUST THE ESSENTIALS in this one and leave the rest here"... and the "essentials" bag begins to grow.

The bag I'm using right now has:
rubber curry
dandy brush
3 hoof picks (I have one guy with SUPER bad thrush, so everyone has their own hoof pick)
a slick n easy
SleekEZ shedding blade (omgosh, best thing EVER... I need to get rid of the rubber curry and slick n easy)
fly spray
ointment for my mare's fly allergy (concoction of swat, hydrocortisone, and benedryl cream)
ToDAY cow mastitis treatment (for Jack's thrush)
a bottle of disinfectant (horse safe) from my farrier, that I rinse Jack's feet with and clean the hoof pick with
an extra lead rope
OH, and a hair brush (for mane and tail)
and a jar of organic coconut oil

And that's the ESSENTIALS bag. Wow. Sad.

2 hoof picks
a regular rubber curry
an Oster coarse curry
curry scrubber (with 2-sided nubs)
2 hard brushes
a medium "flick" brush
a really soft finishing brush
a small soft face brush
a mane & tail paddle brush
triple antibiotic cream
Baby sunscreen (water proof)-my girl has a pink nose!
a flea comb (to brush out her feathers)
tweezers (in case I find a tick!)
Braid bands
Eqyss Microtek spray
Eqyss Survivor detangler (smells like heaven!)
fly spray!

My hoof gel & shampoo just stays in my locker since all of the above takes up all of the room in my box!

I also like to have several old white socks. I use them Rosas faces and clean noses.

I just cleaned mine out. Yikes! I have all my bathing supplies in a bucket, all my sprays & ointments in another grooming box and all my "out of season" brushes in a plastic tote.

Currently in the box is:

Rubber curry
Metal curry (for brushes)
Stiff brush
Soft brush
Jelly scrubber (she loves it on her legs)
Small soft face curry
Face brush
small super duper soft brush (for her nose & ears....she loves to have brushed)
2 scissors (one standard & one fetlock shears)
hoop pick with brush
sheepskin mitt
Small hand clipper with extra battery
Screwdriver...lack of anywhere better (more convenient) to put it
Height & weight tape
bag of rubber bands
baby wipes (for eyes & nose)
2 hair clips
Cowboy magic detangler

The love for a horse is just as complicated as the love for another human being...If you never love a horse, you will never understand.
