Shedding Season Showdown: Blade VS HandsOn

From Professional Equine Grooms:

Shedding Season Showdown – the shedding blade VS HandsOn Grooming Gloves

It’s unavoidable – the heavy spring shed of horse owners and the milder, but equally annoying, fall shed.  The best things to do are to avoid standing downwind, forgo wearing lip balm, and curry until your arms fall off.  There are some amazing tools out there to help your horse or dog (or goat or cat) get this done – so they are going head to head in an epic battle.   Let’s call this the ultimate horse shedding tool showdown!

Can the tool be used wet – for a bath, or it’s rainy, or you dropped it in a puddle?  HandsOn Gloves are designed to go from dry to wet and back to dry, letting your horse be massaged during a shampoo.  Blades are not water friendly.  Think warped handles and rusty blades.

HandsOn Gloves:  1               Shedding blade:  0

Can the tool be used all over your horse?  The gloves are designed to work over bony portions, down legs, on faces, in sensitive areas.  Blades, they are rigid and metal, no way you can get into the nitty gritty or move over shoulders and hips.

HandsOn Gloves:  1               Shedding blade:  0

Can the tool be used all year long?  HandsOn Gloves do multiple duty as shedding assistant, bath mitt, massage instrument, and daily curry comb.  The metal blades don’t double as curry combs, massage tools, or bath mitts.

HandsOn Gloves:  1               Shedding blade:  0

Can the tool help you determine if your horse is sore? Wearing a glove allows you to get instant feedback about any place on your horse that might be sore.  A shedding blade might be the actual cause of irritations, and certainly doesn’t give you any feedback into your hands and fingers about how your horse feels.

HandsOn Gloves:  1               Shedding blade:  0

Can the tool enhance your horse’s coat by bring up natural oils and removing dander?  HandsOn Gloves work down into the hair, letting the skin be massaged and stimulating your horse’s natural oils and shine.  This process also brings up dirt, dust, and dander, which is then easily removed with a brush.  Shedding blades are designed to go along the surface of your horse.

HandsOn Gloves:  1               Shedding blade:  0

Can the tool remain in your hand without being dropped?  And on the same note, is the tool easy to hold if you have wrist, hand, or finger stiffness?  HandsOn Gloves stay on your hands – you are not holding anything.  Shedding blades have a tendency to slip, be dropped, and be generally unruly.

HandsOn Gloves:  1               Shedding blade:  0

Can you use the tool to pick up other things?  Like a hoof pick, a dandy brush, a shampoo bottle?  If you are wearing grooming gloves, you are in luck, as your fingers will still work to grab other things.  With the shedding blades, you are stuck putting down and picking up.

HandsOn Gloves:  1               Shedding blade:  0

I know what’s in my grooming kit!  GLOVES!   (Final score too embarrassing to print…)
