Maintaining that beautiful coat after Spring shedding. by Jennifer Tipton
Hopefully you have not blown out your elbows deshedding that winter coat. If your elbows now snap a little when you move your arms, perhaps next season you will consider using a super deshedding tool such as SleekEZ’s Original Grooming Tool that gets shedding hair removed fast. No doubt you are now looking at a nice, shiny coat on that beautiful animal of yours; the dapples are popping, the copper is gleaming, or you are seeing new spots on that Appaloosa you might have. Nothing is more rewarding than seeing your labor create such magnificent beauty.
Summer months bring flies and dust. Baths, lots of brushing away dust and fly spray are essential to maintaining a happy, gorgeous horse. We know that mainstays for removing that embedded dirt in the coat: You tap the dirt from the curry comb and finish with a soft brush. We do the best we can, but all have witnessed that the dirt just sticks to the coat like a magnet. The best resort is a bath which might be fun, but time consuming and not always possible for those with horses in the pasture.
The next best solution? The SleekEZ Original Grooming Tool not only desheds that winter hair, but it also removes embedded dirt from the hide. Working one area to the next, you will see dirt accumulate on top of the coat with each stroke. It will look like a mini plow came thru and pushed all the dirt from the coat. It’s rather mesmerizing. Next, take a soft brush to the coat and wipe away all that dirt. Viola! You have a dazzling shine and maintained that healthy coat oil that you might have otherwise washed away with bathing.
