Hoof Pick: Any of the ones with the brush on the end... lol <~~ agreed!
Curry Comb I think they're by 'unigroom' or something... but they have little finger protrusions, bigger then your normal curry come (like 10-15) and they are AMAZING. LOVE. Better then any shedding blade or stone!
Mane/Tail Comb: I use the Oster's one... it's pretty awesome.
Mane/Tail Brush: Oster's
Clippers: I have a wahl cordless set that are AMAZING, with a rechargeable battery and #30 blades. Then I have the A5 Oster's kit, with #10 and #40 blades. (I show, can you tell? XD)
