I can admit to being a bit obsessive about my horse’s leg care. While Ax doesn’t often have very strenuous workouts, I’d rather play it safe than show up to a warm or puffy leg the next day. In my book, jumping, lessons, horse shows, and hunter paces are all activities that require wrapping and sometimes poulticing afterwards, but with Ax’s current rehab routine based off of the Mystery Lameness of 2017, my urge to wrap has increased significantly.

Ax has had the same 180 gram turnout, an ugly, red plaid no-name brand, since I got him in August of 2013.

On top of that, I’ve always loved wood-backed brushes because they simply look pretty.
That said, I was super excited to try out the Wahl grooming tools when I heard they were releasing a handful of the line in a new color. Because of my picky nature, the range of brushes I like is limited and usually pricey, so I am always willing to see how new brushes hold up to my standards. This set was a handful of pleasant surprises.
