I LOVE the Slick 'N Easy Grooming Blocks!

They work great for when your horse is shedding. You should get all that caked mud off of him first, and then it just gets all the hair out of him so easily. You don't have to tire yourself out with a rubber curry when you use them. I don't use them to get off mud, and I can't say they make the hair coat more shiny...

But they are well worth buying for shedding.

I would wait to get one since they are pretty useless at getting mud off. I have used them for hair removal when shedding and for removing bot fly eggs. I like to sharpen the edge by rubbing it on concrete for bot removal but its a little more expensive then just a bot knife. I still like my metal curry for mud removal, I know the rubber is more popular but you can't beat the metal for really thick caked on mud.

Yeah, I own one also. I wouldn't suggest using it to brush off caked on mud though. I usually use my small bristleoster curry comb on their legs and then go through with my stiff brush. Whatever doesn't come off, which is usually the big chunks, I just use my hands to pick it off.

I just use the block to help with the shedding process.Like Deanna said, I haven't noticed it helping with the shine though...

i agree with everyone else. they are great for removing shedding hair but pretty useless for anything else

I know this is really old, stumbled on it searching for grooming blocks but since noone really said anything about the caked mud, in case it's not abswered somwhere esle already here goes:
get a sheding comb for dogs, best known is Furminator but any 10x cheaper copy will do.

I live in one of the wettest places there is, rains all year and in the winter, mud+winter coat is just ace! I own a tack and pet shop so I tried everything we sell, and that was the miracle solution.

Hope I helped!
have a nice winter!

PS: to scrape the accumulating mud+fur cake on the comb just carry a stiff brush on the other hand to brush past it every few swings.
