Grooming bag, what do i need?
Hey everyone (: Okay, so i already have alot of stuff in my grooming bag (basically a old bookbag filled with horse stuff). My mare is a Tennessee Walking horse, and they tend to have long manes and tails, so i guess you could say thats what i "specialize" in, or tend to care for the most. Im going to be moving her soon (havent been able too yet, been too busy), and i might be working part time at her new stable, since i've been wanting a job that has something to do with horses. The owner said they could maybe use a groomer. And personally, when i groom my horse, i make sure she's stunning when i get done, lol.
But what im wanting to know, what else do i need? What are some goo products you use? I'll list everything i have, and at the new place, theirs different types of horses. Like a friesian, and a couple hunter/jumping horses, and 2 cobs (that are adorable and look like twins).
So if you dont mind, please list things you have and use, that would be a good thing i might need to groom these different horses. (:
What i have is:
-Cowboy magic detangler
-Wide toothed comb
-Roll on flyspray
-Show sheen polish
-tri-tech fly repellent
-Jelly scrubber, small curry comb for the face
-Mane & tail conditioner
-Quic black shampoo
-Shapleys hi shine shampoo
-Ultra clear hoof polish
-Mane & tail shampoo
-Absorbine hooflex liquid conditioner
-Rainmaker triple action hoof moisturizer & conditioner.
- And a three tube tail bag which is currently on my mare.
I groom about 40 horses in a week so I have a lot but heres whats in my bag
Well, looking at your list:
*Regular curry comb
*Sweat scraper- I like to use mine after hosing off or bathing horses to scrape away excess liquid
*Hoof picks- I like the ones with brushes- keep several as they tend to get lost/"borrowed"
*A spray bottle of water, could be useful for braiding
*Baby powder/corn starch/french chalk, for white markings- only if getting a horse ready to show
*Baby oil around the eyes, and on the ears- also for showing
That's all I can think of at the moment. I'll post again if I can think of anything else. I hope I helped!
I'll just list thing that haven't been mentioned.
*Healthy Haircare moisturizer
*terry cloth rags
*ear plugs (helps when clipping greenies)
*Show Sheen or similar for shows
*curries with different sizes of teeth
*stiff bristle brush for cleaning hooves
*metal curry for cleaning brushes
*Cowboy Magic stain remover or similar
*super soft jelly scrub mitt for legs
ETA diaper rash cream or sunblock for white skin and sunscreen for horses prone to sunbleaching
