The first night after it came in the mail, I used it on the puppies. It was very very cold out so I though I'd use it in the kitchen where the hair would be easy to contain and clean up after. OMG. Hair EVERYWHERE. I got a small cat's worth of hair off Ranger and Roader and then I brought a couple cats in the house and worked on them. SO. MUCH. HAIR. And my kitties loved it the most. Pedro (the horse-riding, badass) was purring and rolling his back and got mad when I stopped.
When I first got it, the horses hadn't quite started shedding yet, but I got to work anyways. Curtis, who normally looks like a woolly mammoth with all his hair (I like to think of his hair when he's out in a breeze as amber waves of grain rolling in the wind), looked a lot better. I've had more time to work on Twister with it though and if I keep up with it every day until next weekend, I'll only need to clean up his legs for the show. No clipping necessary. He looks super good already. I pulled a shit ton of hair off him last night and again this afternoon. I was kneeling under him raking his belly with it and I was covered in little clouds of sorrel fluff. His favorite is when I do his girth area and his chest. He stretches his head out and fwaps his lips. I was even getting between his back legs and around his sheath and down his legs to his knees/hocks (which I wouldn't probably do unless you have a horse that just doesn't give a shit like Twister.... he's pretty immune to any and all handling of any part of him at all times). If I used the SleekEZ on Curtis the same way I used it on Twister I'd probably get kicked in the face. Twister doesn't have a super thick winter coat so it doesn't look as dramatic as the video when I use it on him, but it works. I love it and I totally recommend it!
|I needed to do his belly fuz but he had to go run the fence in the mud so he's all wet from a belly/leg bath....|
But! Look how shiny he is! Almost all the hair is gone!
The dog-sized one works well on their legs too.
This weekend I'm going to attack Curtis with it when I'm at the track. My person says that he's not really shedding a lot yet, but we just put him on supplements for his coat so I'm hoping maybe he'll start soon.
oooh interesting! my mare hates getting fussed with (and doesn't have much of a coat anyway), but i'm all about anything that helps make shedding less of a painReplyDelete
