Your pictures are great- and your horses look sooo much more comfortable in the "after" pictures (I loved the pretty dapples on that second mini!).

I'll be honest, I am terrified of clipping and last time my girl needed it I convinced the BO to do it for me. Do you have any good video clips, etc. you'd recommend to get myself ready to do it on my own? What are your tips and tricks?

The best video I found on body clipping was a free clipping DVD that came with my Wahl clippers. It shows the entire process of body clipping and it's easy to see. I don't think you can order just the DVD though, you would have to buy their clippers. Mine were $34, Wahl ShowPro bridle path/whisker trimmers.

Unfortunately his mane no longer looks like that. His old pasture mate chewed a huge chunk of it off and we had to roach it. Thank goodness he has a great forelock.

When is was chewed off
