Question Clipping Butt Designs

I think there have been TONS of threads on this, but I'm going to a fun show in two weeks, and I want to have fun with my clippers.

The name is Cloverleaf Saddle Club, so I was thinking about clipping a four leaf clover into her but.

Her name is Alibi, and I was thinking about maybe putting an A, but that seems weird. I'm assuming I should do both sides? I'd be clipping into her hair, not leaving it and clipping around it.

Any suggestions?

Clipping a clover would be fun. Print out your design on contact paper. Then cut it out with a razor knife. Then you are left with the template to stick to her butt (not the part you cut out but the part you cut out of). That's what we do when we airbrush dogs or horses at work. I would work just as well with clipping. Stars are always fun and easy too.

A clover would be cool. This is what I do with my boy. 23104_100000781994714_9472_n.jpg

You clip for a purpose to make the horse more comfortable when he has a thick coat - he is not a pair of designer jeans!

It may seem to be fun but you need to think of the horses comfort - too many people clip crazy designs on their horse that leave vast areas of body uncovered that needs to be warm.

Unless you have someone running around after you with a blanket to throw over the horses back when waiting around at shows the poor horse is left with a cold back and cold muscles get damaged easily.

It's already in the 60's here. Plus, it's just a small spot on her butt, I'm sure she'll be fine

What about using glitter paint or something to make your designs? It'll still look fun for the show, but it's not permanent and not messing with your horse's hair coat.
