Can anyone recommend some good clippers? What size blade would I need for trimming whiskers and such, and what size for full body?

I'm pretty new to clipping,

But Andis UltraEdge AGC Super 2-Speed Animal Clipper are mine and my barn owner's favorite (who used to be a groom for high level dressage horses).

They're corded but, they have serious power. They sheered my pony like butter.

I have a bunch of blades but my favorite are the 10 and 30...

I used guards on my clippers.

I just bought these: Andis AGC Super 2 Speed Clipper - Horse Clippers from SmartPak Equine and love them.

I'm new to clipping though so there are probably other options out there.

I think clipping whiskers, bridlepath, beards, etc.. the blade should be a little smaller than body clipping ones.

It comes with a smaller set of clippers as well. It tells you on the box which blades work with it too.

I'll look into those.
Any preference of cord or cordless?

Are you two talking about the same ones?

No, they're by the same company but, they're different clippers. Similar though.

Cords are preferred (for me), their power is more consistent, they don't die out. As long as you have an extension cord you hardly notice the cord. I would never buy a cordless clipper unless I meant to use it only for the face.

I purchased the Whal Iron Horse clippers. They are excellent for half the price of other clippers. I use them to trim manes, trace clips, face, whiskers, fetlock fluffs, you name it. Awesome clipper.

They are corded (nice length) and they have a metal body. Also, they came with a free pocket trimmer from

I would always go with corded. Just get an extension cord so you can clip anywhere. They're much more reliable..

And no two different models of the same brand of clipper. I have a WAHL mini... and it does a decent job of trimming here and there.

I bought these clippers: WahlŽ Pink Moser Arco SEŽ Cordless Horse Clipper | Dover Saddlery I love them! I got them in pink...but you can get them in silver too! I like these cordless clippers because you have a lot of mobility with them. They have two chargeable batteries so you can charge one while you clip with the other, and then you switch when the other one dies. But the batteries do last about an hour. The blades are wonderful. And what I love most about them is that they have a little switch on the side so you can go from a size 10 blade to a size 40 blade in seconds. They are also very quite and my horse loves them. They are a little expensive, but are well worth the money!
