While at a big box store, I picked up a pair of these rubber grip gloves for under $3 for working around the barn.
I had them on while doing some farrier maintenance trims, and as I reached up to pat Tesla, I realized - Oh, these could be used as grooming gloves too!
So while they aren't as fancy as these $25 onesfrom smartpak,
the $3 ones actually did a decent job in finishing off the grooming session, and smoothing the coat and removing that top last layer of dust. They were especially appreciated on itchy faces and ears :)
I'm absolutely gonna pick up a second pair - so each of the girls can have their own :)
5 outta 5 stars.
