About Leo and Me
I never wanted a gray or white horse because I always thought they’d be too hard to keep clean. However, when I met Presidio, aka “Leo” and realized we were the perfect match, I decided to take the plunge. Not long after that dive which, by the way, was in the depths of winter, I discovered my fear of white was not unfounded. Every blanket, saddle pad, cooler and fleece (including the ones I was wearing) quickly became coated in hair. I knew it would only get worse once he started to shed so I began experimenting with a variety of products to see what worked best. He wouldn’t tolerate the large teeth of a standard shedding blade and, although they worked well, the shedding stones wore down to nothing after just a couple of grooming sessions.
