Day 26 – Your grooming routine
Depends on the time of year & how dirty the horse is, but the following is a rough guide.
If they’e been out & have mud on them or have a lot of loose hairs I start with the rubber curry comb & give them a good going over with that, then give them a going over with the dandy brush to get the dirt off. Next I use the body brush to get the dust off & to do the face and legs. Then I comb the mane with a mane comb & brush the tail with a tail brush & apply anti-tangle spray if needed. Next I sponge the eyes, nostrils & dock. Then I pick out the feet & scrub the mud of the hooves with a brush if needs be, then apply hoof oil.

If we’re going anywhere, Stuart usually gets a bath as he always manages to get his white patches dirty.
