    Default Back on Track Mash Sheet - how to get hair off?

    My BOT mesh sheet is absolutely embedded with hair now that its shedding season. Before I put it in the washer I want to get as much hair off as possible, but I can't figure out the best way to do it. Brushing it does nothing, I seem to be reduced to plucking big clumps out. Anyone have a better method?

    Snow- I tried with my horse vac yesterday, that didn't seem to get it either, I might have better luck with a different vac...

    After my one experience I vowed never to put it on a shedding horse again

    A stiff dandy and a leaf blower helped get the worst off for me, but for the multitude of hairs that wove themselves into the fabric, I had to resort to using tape to lift them. One of those pet hair rollers would have come in handy.
    Worry is the biggest enemy of the present... it’s like using your imagination to create things you don’t want.

    Use a shedding blade very lightly over the hair clumps.

    It works!
