Didnt know there was this many. Any pics of examples? TIA

Here is a pic of most of my grooming box, please excuse the dirt haha.

Top row:

  1. Shedding Blade, Not used every time, use it mostly open and mainly to shed out the coat. Sometimes as a curry, especially on very thick dried mud but only to break it up as I think the metal teeth damage/strip oils out of the hair.
  2. Rubber Curry. Used year round to bring dirt/dust/dead skin from the skin to the surface.
  3. Mud Brush: Used year round as mane and tail brush, also on tough dirty spots. It is very stiff coarse boar bristle.
  4. Hoof Pick: used daily
  5. Hoof Brush: used a lot to brush away dirt from the sole and the hoof wall.

Bottom row:

  1. Dandy Brush: natural material, may be Tampico (I think that is a plant). Long bristled of medium coarseness and stiffness. Used daily to flick away the dirt/dust brought up by currying.
  2. Finishing Brush: natural material, horsehair. Long fine soft bristles. Used whenever I want to to smooth out the brush marks left from the coarser dandy brush.
  3. Face Brush: natural material, horsehair with same density as the finishing brush. Used on his face whenever I want. Was looking for a face brush, most are a bit of an hourglass shape, but I could only find nylon bristled ones. Then when at the shoe dept in a discount department store I saw this as a shoe polishing brush. Cheaper than any face brush I saw and exactly what I wanted. LOL
Also I have a very dense, very fine, very soft, very short haired, made in England goat hair brush. Not pictured. This will get out any brush lines left from any brush, can be used in place of a polishing rag.

Use it rarely, but it lets any natural shine come through. Never would use it after applying any spray, fly spray, shine spray (don't use that anyway), moisturizer, anything, for fear it may taint, stick to, or damage the brush hairs.

Thank you for the pic and the detailed examples, you have quite the collection. I just have two soft brushes, a mud brush, a face brush and a stiffer one for her mane and tail. I have a shedding blade as well but find I never have to use it
