I see a horse with a coat in very good condition. She is acting/behaving very normally, like a horse.
Thanks. I think she has a great coat as well. The red in it is so prounounced.
I just got a flashlight that goes on my head. All the horses are all very concerned about the thing on my head, whether it is on or off.
It may be more beneficial for the horse to wear the camera and film you. hahaha
Otherwise I don't much care for videos taken without seeing both parties of the team. Riding or groundwork.
Oh, well I guess but horses will get used to a stuff on your head no?
Ive decided as much as I want to, Im not going to use this head camera at the barn. Its going to be too much of a distraction and my mare probably wont like it much.
I just thought perhaps, some times when you see some stuff from a 1st person perspective it does help (like when grooming a horse). Obviously groundwork and riding you cant pick up much from a 1st person camera but its great for when you want to get up close.
Currying technique could be improved, to go over all the horse, not just some of her, in circular with the hair growth motion, vigorous but not too heavy especially to start with each area-then increasing to pull up dirt from skin to surface.
Oh Im usually a lot harder with the curry comb and I go in circles. Its just that Im still in the cautious phase when brushing my mare seeing how shes probably not 100% healed and just had her first chiro adjustment last Tues.
So far she seems a lot better! Like wow so much better. Even though im still being gentle, she hasnt pinned her ears or told me that a certain spot is soar.
Im not surprised the drastic night and day difference an adjustment makes and how immediate it comes in to play. Like I said, my ex had a rib out and was grouchy, once she had it adjusted she was like a whole new horse the day after.
The brush used with sponge in center is intended for bathing.
You mean the one Im using in the video? Oh I didnt know this. This was my brush that I picked up intending to use for winter only/ All my soft brushes are the the other kind, the regular ones (dandy brush is i guess you would call it)
A dandy brush is needed to flick away the dirt that was raised from currying. I prefer a natural bristle brush, not nylon or poly or synthetic. Also I like 2 or 3 brushes, if I have the time will use all three.
First a short bristled stiff mud brush (sometimes use before the curry for caked on dried mud),
then a long bristled medium dandy brush (to get the dust off in a flicking of the wrist motion),
then a fine bristled finishing brush, optional (to smooth out the brush marks on the coat).
Didnt know there was this many. Any pics of examples? TIA
