Glad you liked it @Cedar & Salty , they are amazing aren’t they? Love the fact that the horses seem to like them as well.

I'm totally getting one right now. You should have bought stock in these brushes before you told us all about them @Golden Horse ! And why am I only finding out about these now???

So does the Schimmel compare to a hard brush or a soft brush? Do you use it after the curry, or just at the end?

It’s a very short haired hard brush. Currently I use my Handson Grooming gloves, to massage and loosen all the hair and crud. Then I go over the fatty muscly areas with my Sleekeasy, to remove as much loose hair as I can....Big Guy is shedding big style. Then the Schimmel, then Rub down with my cactus cloth. When the Diva turn up I will finish with that..

I use after my grooming gloves, as well. Salty likes the gloves better than a curry.

I think I need to get a set of those gloves and one of those brushes. I have two greys right now, one should be called "Pig Pen" for how messy she gets. The other is a very tidy horse who loves to be brushed and does not like getting dirty. However both of them could use the gloves for when they shed out this spring. I don't know what happened to all my brushes and combs, however, I suspect a small blue Australian Cattle Dog may be closely involved with the thefts.

Order has been placed! Can't wait to use it on Harley (who is the flea-bitten grey standing there, pretending he's a roan), and if I really like it, I might even get a second one for Rusty (who likes to augment his brown spots with mud). Because THIS:

I bought the Schimmel, Lipizzaner Damen, and the Diva. With the winter coats shedding, the Schimmel is working out the best for me. I think I'll be more impressed with the Lipizzaner and the Diva when the summer coats come in. They seem kind of pointless right now with all the fuzzy hair. By the way, I love what the Schimmel does for my horses' white manes. It leaves them shiny and flowing.

Got my second Diva last night (you know, one for the trailer and one for the barn ), but I won't really use it until shedding is over ...


Using the Schimmel for manes???? Hmm...

I know it sounds weird, but it really makes them look good! It doesn't get all the tangles out, but it makes them look so clean and shiny. I was shocked.
