    What a satisfying project! He was beautiful before and he is gorgeous afterwards!. How I wish my shaggy dogs would let me do that for them!

    2. Me too ... great minds and all .... :) ;)

      Hank was giving the camera the bug-eye treatment ... is it a hand held or a Go-Pro type helmet cam?

  5. Love his face at the beginning: "what's she gonna DO to me?" But that rake must feel wonderful on the itchy skin. What a handsome boy! I see Alan in the background, thinking, "Nyah nyah! It's you & not me!" Then: "Wait a minute. How come HE gets all the treats?"

  6. 45 min of work summed up in 3 min? Also, Cowboy Magic is great stuff. I used the detangle & shine to deburr mares in record time. I also keep the shampoo & conditioner on hand at home for my own use. Best. Stuff. Ever.

  12. Just have to add one more thing....Hank sure looks great, but how did you look after that?

  13. Good boy, Hank! He looks even more handsome than usual! Did he go right out an roll in the mud when you let him go? ;)

  14. He looks so pretty...what a difference it makes. I love them in their winter coats but then when they shed out and are groomed it makes them look young again.

  15. Hank is very patient. I wish my kids had the same patience when I did their hair.

  16. Isn't it great to get the brushes back out! Hank looks awfully handsome. Now ... does this mean he'll walk away from you and then promptly roll in the paddock? ;)

    Handsome Hank! I wonder if he was like, "What is that other thing you are holding?!"
    You should just set up a tripod and leave the camera there...then you'll have both hands free!

    Just wondering about one thing, I always wondered about cutting a horse's whiskers. Doesn't it help them feel for stuff under their chin, since they aren't able to see under there? Kind of like feelers?

    1. The whiskers do serve as antennae, so I trimmed Hank's instead of shaving them off. Usually I just let them grow, but he was looking particularly straggly.

      Glad to hear that! Recently at our riding club, some people cut the club horses' whiskers really short and I thought I was the only one who thought that was...too short. ;)

  27. Hi Linda, I've discovered what I think is the best hair stripper ever. It's called Sleek-EZ and I've used it the last two years on the horses at our riding stable. When winter coats start to go, this stripper takes the hair off in sheets. We've also used it on the dogs and cats too. It's truly a great device. Check out their website if you're interested: http://www.sleekez.com/pages/welcome. Tell Hank he's one handsome guy! :-)
