In this order....

Jelly curry scrubber (face on one side, body on the other.. and it has glitter!)
Laser Sheen spray
Big wooden body brush, medium strength bristles
Blue handled metal shedding blade (for cleaning my brushes!)
Oster hoofpick in green
Hoof Marvel spray (hoof moisturizer)
Mane n' Tail Detangler
One air stuffed hairbrush (the kind you push and it decompresses.. the ones you used when you were little to brush hair)
Pyranha Flyspray
Swat! in clear
Copper 65 (i think..) spray on sunscreen (for his lovely pink nose)
Tissues and baby wipes, for his nostrils, around his ears, eyes, and face

I need more stuff though.. like a comb and rags and hair elastics, etc.

........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!
Hey my ponys name is indy and shes always getting beat up too

My grooming kit that I use daily has...

- Dandy Brush
- Body Brush
- Face Brush
- Curry Comb
- Rubber/Jelly Curry Comb
- Hoof pick
- Mane Comb
- Scissors

I think that's it... I have a grooming trolley full of equipment for all sorts of accessories and that for extra grooming... but I like to keep it very simple. If I was a person who got out a bit more than I have in the past, I probably would be more interested in grooming tools and equipment. But as long as Honey is clean, I don't mind :)
