On a daily basis, especially in the months that your horse may be blanketed, or subjected to winter weather elements, you should be daily grooming.
Start with a rubber grooma (or curry comb). Deep massage all over generating that hair & dead skin to come to the surface. Follow this with a somewhat stiff body brush. Finish with a soft face brush all over his body. Using the grooma where he can't get to such as around the backs/insides of the rear legs, under the belly, the neck, ears, face, chest will develop his love for you that not many other things can compete with! Don't forget to pick his feet! Pick his feet at least 2X daily in the winter months!
