Is there a curry that....
...my thin skinned, overly sensitive horse will tolerate?
My guy has lost a little bit of his sheen now that he's clipped, and the only ingredient missing is I don't curry him (wait! There's a valid reason). He is an extremely sensitive, thin skinned TB and between being clipped and being cold and being who he is, curries and brushes just don't make for good grooming sessions. I DO rub the crap out of him with rub rags, but it doesn't seem to be getting the job done this year.
Nothing else has changed. He's still on good quality hay plus his pasture still has some ok grass to graze on (he and his companions spend most of their day grazing rather than eating the hay thrown out). His diet hasn't changed (Fibergized Omega plus 1 cup of Cocosoya oil). He's generally happy, healthy, in great spirits, fighting fit (Way fitter than he needs to be this time of year). And while he could certainly look a lot worse, he just doesn't have that WOW shine that I pride myself in for achieving. So, that makes me wonder if I need to find a way to get a curry back into his routine...but without getting my teeth kicked in!
I usually use the jelly curries on him, but even they are too pointy this time of year. Suggestions? Other ideas to consider?
