Cordless clippers

Looking into getting a set of cordless clippers. I do not want the way expensive kind as they are really just for Mr. AB to use - he wants them to work with his mare, figures training will be easier cordless.

Any better than others?

Looking for people's opinions on models they have had or used, please.

My favorite cordless:
Dover Saddlery | Oster Pro-Cord/Cordless Horse Clipper/Trimmer .

It's quiet, it stays pretty cool, and its cheap! :)

I have never bought a set so I am useless but I will say cordless sounds like a great idea ! My mare when I clipped her for the first time decided to throw her leg at the clippers and got a hold of the cord.. brand new clippers broken :(

The stable owner where I keep my horse just buys the Wahl dog clippers at Wal-Mart. She swears by them. She did a nice job on the mane, ears, and whiskers of my horse just the other day.

Are they cordless, Wink? I did not know Wally world had cordless models (never looked).

I'd also look into small pet clippers. They're cheaper, and for bridle baths, wounds, and whiskers, they'll do just fine. There's no point in spending a fortune more for the same set but with a horse on the box. =P

And since they won't be used much, I think a cheap pair would suit you just fine. Especially if, during training, a pony knocks it out of your hands and then proceeds to stomp on it like my little one did. Thank god they were only $15 or she would have been dog food. =]

I haven't used anything but the Andis AGC...Lol! However, if you look on Petedge's site, there are tons of different clippers listed.

Cordless clippers for humans at Walmart are $25-$45 here. I just "borrow" the clippers my parents deem broken and fix them up. They aren't heavy duty, but they are great for desensitizing and clipping bridle paths and such.

All I use them for is a bridle path but I just use cheap remington beard trimmers and they work perfectly. And the great thing is they're only $25

And on another note, Blink, I heard that it's very bad to clip ears, eyelashes, and whiskers. Ear hair protects from all of the bugs that like to attack their ears, eyelashes let horses know when to blink if there is a fly about to land on their eye, and whiskers are a way for a horse to feel things before they bump into them. I was reading a story about a horse that had it's whiskers clipped and he'd dunk his whole head into the water, when eating grass he'd push his head right into the ground, and he'd run into the electric fence all the time. I don't know how truthful this was, but I'm not going to risk it, they were all put on the horses for some reason, not trying to tell you what you did was wrong as I didn't know any better until a couple weeks ago when I saw this guy's video.

Andis is all I use, 6 days a week.
