    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.
    Ask yourself: "Can I do anything about this?"
    If you can, do it. If you can't... then you can't and leave it at that. Worrying achieves nothing but stress.

    Use a shedding blade very lightly over the hair clumps.

    It works!
