Trying to get a little more serious and do things a little better
Great advice 👍
After a winter’s worth of growing coats worthy of wooly mammoths, our horses are finally shedding, and yours probably are too.
Luckily, we’ve figured out a few tips for helping the process go smoothly.
- The traditional rubber curry comb or grooming glove works well, but a metal shedding blade (when used gently) works even better for longer hair over the body. A grooming stone (actually made from fiberglass) is great for sensitive areas like legs and also helps remove bot eggs when needed.
- Exercise increases bloodflow, which encourages shedding. Keeping your horse in regular work may help them let go of some hair.
- If it’s especially warm in your part of the world, a body clip might be an option, but the horse’s coat will likely be dull until the spring coat grows in.
- Making sure the horse has enough fatty acids in their diet is good for overall coat…

So the new relationship begins… There’s still a bit of fine tuning to be done but the new bike is essentially complete.

The Jagwire brake cables arrived the other day but I think I’ll wait to change the cables over until I know which baggage option is chosen for the bars. Continue reading

I had to share this one, soooo cool! I think I’d be a bit nervous just walking this path.
