What's in your grooming kit?

So yeah. Just a fun thread. What's in your grooming tote? Extra cookies if you list them in the order you use them! =D

My grooming kit:
Jelly Scrubber Curry [the double sided one you put your hand in]
Oster Stiff Brush
Winner's Circle Flick Brush
Winner's Circle Finishing brush
Soft brush
Rub rag [I stick it under the hose for a second then ring it out]
Hoof pick

Then in my tote I have Sasha's fly bonnet, Horseman's One Step leather Cleaner, Both Oster Curries which I never use, a shedding blade which I barely use; my horse doesn't shed I swear, sometimes a set of polos end up in there, and there is always random bits in there. I think I have some safety stirrup bands in there and I think I have half a granola bar...o.O

Of course, I have floating around somewhere my essential life saver Vetrolin Shine, and a sheepskin fuzzy mitt.

Oh cry me a river, build a bridge, and get over it.

Ima go with the grooming kit for my lesson horse, because if I ran the world (had my own Private Grooming Kit Fiefdom) thing would be different. Different, I say!

As it is, grooming bucket current consists of:
2 rubber curry combs
1 flick brush
1 finishing brush
1 winter-coat-shedding-blade
0 hoof picks

Why he needs a winter-coat-shedding-blade in the bucket in AUGUST I do not know. Why I need to keep hijacking hoof picks from other grooming buckets is a little easier to understand...

In my pink main grooming box:

- Rubber curry
- Dandy brush
- Body brush
- Baby Wipes!!!
- Hoof Pick with brush
- Fly spray bottle
- Mane comb
- A few loose mane pulling tools
- A few loose studs i think.... haha oops!
- Leather punch
- Water brush
- Face brush
- small bottle of Banixx spray since Indy always gets beat up!
- COOOKIEEEESSSS (Indy is THE cookie monster!)
........Then I do have a metal shedding blade - BUT most people don't know this but you aren't really supposed to use this on a shedding horse - or any horse period. It's used to clean your brushes.

...Then I have a separate small grooming box for pony club rallies because they are Nazis about clean brushes!

Haha, don't get me started! We bought a 20lb bag of horse treats for my girls! It's stashed at the end of the barn, everyone steals them though...how else would the whole thing be gone in 2 1/2wk?!

In my main, separated grooming box I have;
Stiff brush
Medium brush
Soft brush
Couple of different hoofpicks
Mane brush
Mane comb

Now, in my tack box I have;
Another horses grooming tote, with the same materials.
Several grooming blocks
Lord knows how many more hoof picks are buried under there
Pulling comb
Tennis Balls (?????)
Hoof conditioners
Leather products
Several liniments and shampoos
A polo wrap or two
Tiny face brush
Several cloths
Several pairs of horse boots
Some first aid products
Baby oil
Sponges strung everywhere
I dropped my favorite ring down in this bottomless pit, so that's in there somewhere...

That's all that comes to mind right now.. I'm a very OCD groomer, in case you havn't noticed with my large list of products.

I like to keepit simple. I have
stiff brush
medium brush
soft brush
rubber curry
several hoofpicks
several pulling combs
a soft rag
fly spray
brush and comb for mane and tail

thats everything I use on my horse when I groom, I would probably have more stuff but right now i have kind of a small grooming tote so I cant fit a lot of extra in there.

No whisper of lover, no trilling of bird, can stir me as hooves of horses have stirred.

My grooming kit now includes a new product I found from the Simple Relief natural horse care line. It's called Detangle & Shine and not only does it do the detangle stuff it also has aromatherapy in it that calms my horse. I've used it before the last two shows and we took blues every time. It's my new secret weapon. You might want to give it a try.

This is my everyday grooming kit, not my showing grooming kit. For showing, my grooming supplies are too extensive to list. But for everyday,

Spring (I live in a climate where horses get a heavy winter coat so spring is major shed out time)
shedding blade
large grooma brush
furminator shedder
griddle block
large stiff bristle brush
soft bristle brush
hand mitt brush
mane & tail spray conditioner
mane & tail brush
hoof pick
rub rags
After they are shedded out I don't use the shedding tools but fly spray is added and sunscreen for the one horse's white nose
and polysporin for any minor nicks. I also use a really long soft bristled brush for whisking away dust.
