Oster is my go-to for grooming supplies, both for horses at the ranch I used to work at and for my pets. I especially love the ergonomic handle on their curry combs, which is easy to hold and doesn't irritate my hands even after hours of use, unlike the dog brands where you have to hold the entire brush in your palm. The coarse-toothed rubber curry comb was perfect for my double-coated husky mix who passed away, but I got the fine-tooth kind so it would be more gentle on my new short-haired, bony dog who still needs to gain about 10lbs. She doesn't mind getting brushed with it and it really helps work out loose fur! (I have yet to find a brush my cats *don't* like, so they're not the best judges.) The teeth on the coarse curry had only worn about halfway down in ~8 years of frequent use and still worked just as well, so I'm sure I'll get many good years out of this one, too. Highly recommended whether you're shopping for a horse, dog, cat, or any other farm animal.
Great for sensitive areas like legs. Mare also likes it over her face and back and usually she doesn’t even want to be brushed anywhere except her sides. The coarse curry comb Oster sells is much better for the regular curry comb area of the horse because it’s so easy to clean and is amazing at de shedding, and this one is a great compliment to it.
Bought for my chocolate labs, along with the coarse tooth version. Ergonomic design feels comfortable, secure in my hand. Seems durably made, though I’m uncertain how well the fine teeth will hold up over time. Rating lower than the coarse one, simply bc I see it as an optional, finishing tool, whereas the coarse one is the primary tool that gets the job done. If you only want to buy/use 1 tool, I’d get the coarse one.
My dog is in love with this brush. It is particularly calming for him. I would definitely recommend this for dogs of all cost lengths.
Just got my boy 3 months ago and used the standard curry comb (the soft plastic with ridges/teeth) that I've used for years on previous horse. My new boy would paw and pace while currying. Bought this and in the first use my boy was yawning a chewing. He LOVES this curry comb. Highly recommend for sensitive skin horses.
This is great for the sensitive spots along the horse’s back & withers. Effectively buffs loose hair & dirt! Very nice brush.
I use this on my golden retriever puppy after bathing. Best brush for her coat and she loves it so much she falls asleep to it. Works like a charm to settle her down. Best item under $10 I've bought so far for her.
My Arabian has always hated to be curried. I’ve used the typical hard plastic curry, traditional rubber curry, rubber curry with thick “fingers” etc....he hated them all....until THIS curry.....he still tenses up but not anything near the dancing around in cross ties I deal with when using another curry. Definitely good for those OTTBs and Arabs
I have a pretty fluffy guy but he gets a much thinner summer coat. This softer curry is perfect for his current coat. He even likes this lightly on his forehead. Very happy!
The curry part is great but the handle is awkward for me. The handle is too awkward to hold and push hard to get dirt and hair out, and the space between the handle and brush is too small to fit my hand between so I can hold the brush. Would be good if you have tiny hands or just need to curry lightly.
