Clipping isn't really an option. Our horses are 24/7 pasture residents, so they need their coats for any chilly days that happen to come upon us. But what to do about all of the hair on our tack? The worst part is the girths, which ar nylon and cotton. And then there's the saddlepads. By the time I'm done working a pony, their pad and girth are so covered in hair that it looks like it's alive and trying to grow its own winter coat!
I'm sure atleast some of you have this problem. So what I want to know is...
HOW THE HECK DO I GET IT OFF?!
I mean, sure. I can get it off of the normal saddlepads mostly, if I beat it a few billion times against the fence- but it gets all stuck in the contours of the cotton and wool pads- and wedges itself even into parts of the saddle! A very annoying situation. So what do you do to get all of that unwanted hair off of your horses, if you try at all? Is it a lost cause? Am I just going to have to deal with my OCD self and ignore it? Help me before I drown in a sea of fluff!!!
