Our horses live outdoors 24/7 in summer and in winter.
This results, with the minus-termperatures we usually have, in an extreme
developping of winterfur. And this has to be taken off in spring…
With twelve horses this is quite a hairy project. Already
years ago I started to scratch their neck, croup, back, belly with an older rake whiches prongs have been pretty worn down: the old fur comes out like nothing,I have a certain distance and I’m not too exposed to all the hair coming off.
Our horses enjoy the massage and stand in line for it. The ones who already had their ‘wellness treatment’ walk back and get back in line again for a second round.
A further point is that I easily can scratch their bellies, and with that it puts their back muscles to work.
