My husband just got a new clipper set (for people use) for the holidays and Jax's big ol' winter coat has been wearing on me... don't tempt me people!

I am on a search for a skull & cross bones stencil now! I am sure if I tried free handing a design, it would look like the horse was worked over by a drunk rat!

The skull and cross bone was free handed, if you are talking about the dog ones. Most of them are done free handed as well

I did large hearts

Inspired by that photo, freehand, as well as a fleur de lis.


Basically you just need chalk, freehand the design on so it is even on both sides and then go. Remembering that the direction the hair grows is going to affect symmetry.

It's not super tough (I am no artist by any means) but just takes patience. I give myself at least 3 days to complete a design, and you will need smaller clippers. :)

omg! I've never had any want/need to clip my horses, but now I am so intrigued...

If I did it in, say, springtime when they have their huge fuzzy winter coat... once they shed out to their summer coats, would the design be gone? I could be wrong, but I'm picturing the clippers cutting the coat shorter than even a natural summer coat.


I just don't want to have a weird partial design all summer... I do show and stuff lol.

Anyway, some of those are AMAZING!

As long as you clip before Dec 21st (in the north hemisphere), the horse hasn't started growing summer coat, so the design will shed out with the winter coat.
