Winter fuzzies still clinging onto her legs... bleh. Help?

My mare is basically completely shed out now, but her legs are still woolly and fuzzy from winter yet. I don't want to use the shedding blade on her legs and the curry doesn't seem to help. Any tips?

Thanks!

A good bath using the curry come helps. The hair will come off when its ready. :)

I use 2 grooming mits rubbing the legs in opposite directions. It really helps! And I also use a slick and easy grooming stone!

I have two that are still clinging to their winter underwear...much of it is gone, but they still look wooly...Lol! I just keep currying and waiting for it to release...I don't worry about it they will get rid of it when they get rid of it.

Lacey still has a bunch of fur on her legs and it was really bothering me, so I showed it who was boss with some scissors. I just trimmed all the really obvious long hairs and such so that from a distance, she appears mostly nekked on her legs, but if you get close, not so much! Haha
