Wisps

A simple handful of hay can be a useful grooming tool, or you can weave a sturdy pad that can be used for a stimulating massage.

Using a wisp can be a nice addition to your grooming routine. For a vigorous stropping, smack the wisp flat against the larger muscles (neck, shoulders, hindquarters) and whisk it along the direction of the hair growth. This gentle banging causes the muscles to contract and then relax, increasing circulation and carrying away waste products.
