Using a curry comb on the felt can break down the fibers and/or remove some of the felt. The 5 Star pad I have came with a large, beige, eraser thing about the size of a brick and it removes horse hair without disturbing the fibers of the pad.

You can buy one at PetCo for ~$5.00 and it'll last forever. In fact my wife stole mine because of how well it picks up pet hair from furniture.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

OH, I have one of those too, I LOVE it!! Gets the stray horse hairs out of the car, and everything. Takes the cat hair off my furniture, it's the best thing in the world!!

Have you considered trying a vacuum?
