6.75" wood block, pure white goat hair, leather strap. This luxury brush is very densely filled with white pure goat hair which although exceptionally soft, is hard wearing and resilient. It can be used on the most sensitive skin and really is the best brush for giving the coat that final polish. There are copies around of course, but they are not the same. Incidentally many horses are intrigued by the smell of goat hair, and this may add to your grooming experience!
