Specification of LettersPatent.
Patented Dec. 29, 1908.
Application filed March 25, 1908. Serial No. 423,146.
rovide a brush that will remove dirt, dust' and shedded hair from the skin of a horse, without injuring or agitating the skin to that pxtent as to cause the horse to become restess.
Another object of this invention is to provide an ordinary hair brush with strips of rubber or similar material that will take a firm hold upon loose hairs and filth, thereby allowing the brush to be quickly used for cleansing a horse.
A still further object of this invention is to provide a simple and inexpensive brush that will save considerable labor when cleansing a horse and will leave a horses skin in a thoroughly cleansed condition with the hair polished were used when currying or cleaning the skin of a horse.
With the above and other objects in view which will more readily appear as the invention is better understood, the same consists in the novel construction, combination and arrangement of parts to be presently described and then specifically pointed out in the appended claims.
In the drawings, Figure 1 is an elevation of a brush constructed in accordance with my invention. Fig. 2 is a bottom plan view of the same. Fig. 3 is a longitudinal sectional view of the brush.
To put my invention into practice, I provide an oval shaped body similar flexible material. To this body is secured a strap or suitable handle 2, whereby the brush can be easily gripped and retained in engagement with the hand, while the brush is being used.
Upon the bottom of the flexible body 1, I secure channel shaped metallic strips 3,
and smooth the same as if a cloth 1 of leather or these strips bein suitably secured to the flexible body 1. In each strip I arrange an inverted U shaped strip of'rubber 4, the rubber being secured in said, strips by threads 5 stitched or sewed to the flexible body 1. These stitches will also serve for retaining the metallic strips 3 in position, but I desire it to be understood that rivets or similar fastening means can be employed for retaining the strips 3 and 4 in engagement with the flexible body 1.
The strips of rubber can be arranged upon the flexible body to conform to any desired configuration, but the preferred form is illustrated, wherein a diagonally disposed strip is interposed between two angularly disposed strips.
The body 1 of the brush between the rubber strips thereof is provided with the conventional form of bristles 6, the free ends of which are in a plane horizontal with the lower edgps of the rubber strips 4:.
It is t ought that my invention will be fully understood from the foregoing description, and I reserve the right to make such variations therein as are permissible by the appended claims.
Having now described my I claim as new, is
1. A horse brush comprising a flexible body, a strap or handle carried thereby, a plurality of channel shaped metallic strips arranged upon the body of said brush, inverted U-shaped strips of rubber arranged in said metallic strips and connected with said body, and bristles carried by said body, substantially as described.
2. A horse brush comprising a body portion, a plurality of channel-shaped strips connected thereto, and inverted U-shaped invention what strips of resilient material arranged in said metallic strips, one of said channel-shaped strips being diagonally-disposed and the other of said strips being angularly-disposed with respect to the body portion.
In testimony whereof I afiix my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
