Today’s Grooming Tip

Today’s Grooming Tips:

If it’s too cold to bathe your horse, sponge off his neck, face, saddle and girth area with warm water to remove any sweat.

Bathe your horse before you clip him, as dirt in your horse’s coat will dull your clipper blades and you won’t get a close, even clip.

Use clean sharp clipper blades and make sure your clippers are in good working order to ensure the best results.

As you clip, check the blades frequently to make sure they aren’t getting hot. If they do heat up, let them cool or spray them with a cooling lubricant.

Today’s Grooming Tips:

Grooming mitts are great for wiping dust off your horse and for applying fly spray.

To stimulate growth, brush the dock of your horse’s tail daily with a dandy brush. This will loosen and remove the dirt and dander that make your horse itchy. Brushing the dock and upper part of the tail bone also increases blood flow, which stimulates growth.
