I personally can't stand coat that is ready to come out and is just sitting there...so I groom lots!! Lol!
I hadn't gone out to see the two two year olds for 3 days, as my duties here at the boarding school are done, so someone else has been caring for them; well I went out today and noticed that one was absolutely filthy, so I grabbed the brushes, and groomed them; I got a ton of coat out of the boy, as well as lots of dirt...apparently with the hotter weather he's shedding out more coat, and has been itchy, so he's been rolling! Yes, it will shed out on it's own, but grooming will certainly help it along, AND I think makes the horse feel alot less itchy!
