What is it?
This is a brilliant mane or tail thinning comb that completely removes the need for pulling by hand.You can watch this video to see the effect http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJ9PJlaMM2g
What does it do?
It thins out the hair painlessly by the roots and also by slight cutting action, less so than other thinning combs so you are not left with that 'cut' look.
Smart Tails Standard
(Plastic Handle/Fixed blade)
These revolutionary mane and tail thinners are the only product on the market that actually THIN thick manes and tails, and give the pulled look without discomfort.
A full tail can be transformed to a "pulled" tail ready for the show ring in minutes. Guaranteed to work on the most sensitive of animals. Made from high quality Scandinavian steel and manufactured in Germany this product is available in two ranges.
The standard range shown here, which has a durable plastic moulded handle with steel blades. This is a disposable product, but has a long life, as the blades are of a high quality, and remain sharp for at least 12 tidies. This is available in fine, medium, and coarse.
Which one to choose? This depends on the finish required and the type of hair to be tidied.
The coarse blades (7 teeth) are good for thick full tails and manes, which haven't been tidied before or are very coarse. This will process a large amount of thick hair easily and efficiently leaving a tidy looking finish. The coarse is also very good on natives that are being shown, and the end result needs to look tidy but still untouched.
The medium blades (12 teeth) are good for the average type of mane or tail, this will cope with medium to soft hair and is ideal on manes and tails.
The fine blade (20 teeth) is mostly used on tails which have already been tidied or are quite fine. It is also useful to finish really thick tails when a show or close finish is needed, and the bulk of it has already been shaped with a coarser blade.
Total Impact Equestrian says....
We always have at least two of these in our tack room, never again do you need to have blisters or manage a fidgeting horse pulling manually! These are our favourite grooming product for keeping our horses immaculate. Tails can be combed down each side to remove excess hair in minutes, and manes are best brushed to the wrong side first before thinning, or else the top will become too thin. Hours of time saved! ***** Five Star Product!
