Cool after clip

hi , my horse has had a full clip. he looks stunning, just one question though, a few tiny scaps have come up on his back, could that jus be his numnah rubbing on his skin or due to clippers?thanks

Maybe both. Have you felt them there under all his fur when he had all his fur? If not than it could have just been from the clippers only.

Could be clipper burn; when doing full body clips, it is extremely important to keep your clipper running cool, and having multiple blades to change out during the clip, otherwise you run the risk of burning the horse. I groomed dogs and cats for 15 years, and I have seen some pretty nasty clipper burns...some as bad as getting blisters, and looking like someone had 'cut' them (red streaks, resulting from the blade points, themselves.)
