Dandy Brushes

Champion Brush "Winner's CircleT" Dandy brushes are manufactured on site at our plant in Baltimore, MD, all specially for horse grooming. We keep the production on site so that we can keep a close eye on all aspects of the product; and so that we are always able to give our customers what they want, to the high standards they expect, on time. We are regarded as a yardstick of quality in the industry, and intend to remain that way.

We make Dandy brushes in three sizes of wood block (6 ¼", 7½" and 8 ¼") and two sizes of plastic blocks (6 ¼" and 8 ¼"), with 12 different filling materials, to suit all hands, pockets and horses.

We also manufacture the "Beastie BrushT" Dandy range, great quality brushes with exciting, eye catching different colors and patterns, every time.

Here are some of the fibers we use:

Union Fiber. Union fiber is a stiff mixture of natural materials (sometimes with plastic added) which is ideal for cleaning thicker, muddy coats. We offer softer and stiffer versions.

Tampico Fiber. This inexpensive natural material is very versatile, being tough on dirt but not harsh. It is good for removing dried on mud, and leaves the coat smooth and sleek. It also makes excellent wash brushes, because it absorbs water and releases it slowly. We also make one type of brush with both Union and Tampico.

Horse Hair Blend. Horse hair is used in better polishing and finishing Dandy brushes (please note hair is clipped from horses, and no animal is harmed!). However it is expensive, and is blended with plastic to keep the cost down. When this is done well, it is hard to tell the difference between the hair and the plastic, and the results are very good indeed. There are cheap 'horse hair blends' around, but of course this is because there is more plastic and less hair in them.

Pure Hair. This is ideal for the best polish and shine, and although soft does penetrate the coat for a deeper clean. Simply the best.

Plastics. The plastics (of varying firmness) we use in our Champion Dandy brushes are specially shaped (to a 'clover leaf' section) during the extrusion process. This makes a considerable difference to the life and the performance of the brush, and is one aspect of the production process that sets our products apart from most others. While all plastics tend to be colorful, fun, rot proof, and versatile, lower quality filaments often split, wear to sharp points, or quickly collapse altogether making the brush useless and very uncomfortable for the horse. However, shaped extrusions wear a lot better, don't split or wear to sharp points, have a significantly greater resistance to crushing, and the right amount of firmness and 'spring' that turns an ordinary grooming brush in to a good one.

We also offer "Salmon ProductsT" dandy brushes, along with the superb range of Oval (Body) brushes. There are some very good value economy brushes here, along with specialist products like water brushes and superb rice root brushes, which are also much used in the cattle grooming industry.
