Tuesday Video from SpectraVET: Creative Quarter Marks

A good groom can take an already gifted set of buns to the next level. Quarter marks, for example, are the booty shorts of the horse world, drawing attention to a toned derrière.

And while you can’t go wrong with traditional patterns like checkerboards, shark’s teeth, triangles and racing stripes….

For basic quarter marks, all the tools you really need to get the job done are a fine-tooth comb, small body brush and spray bottle of water or QuicBraid. For a custom design, however, it may be helpful to bring a stencil into the mix. “No Parking,” anyone?
