Evil winter leg hair...

So, my grade mare get's awful hair on her legs in the winter. It's like, 2 inches long, lighter than the rest of her, and pretty much covers the back of her front legs. It makes her look like a failure of a draft cross! When she was 2, it shedded out in the Spring, but last year, when she was 3, it didnt!!!! I ended up going at it with a scissor... and that didn't end up very pretty. :P

Any possible way I can begone with it this Spring that would make it look a bit more...natural than my obvious scissor lines?? Do human clippers work okay on this stuff?

I actually think its kinda cute xD

My advice would be to get some good horse clippers and just shave her legs up to about the knee. I wouldn't trust human clippers.

Slicker bricks! I think that's what they are called, I know them as grill bricks. They are black and look like pumice (may even be pumice lol)

It makes her look like a 15.3hh shetland pony!

I think there's some clippers at my grandpa's place from when my dad took 4H. They're ancient...buuuut...

Human clippers definitely won't work. The blade size is too light.

What about one of those razor combs? If you clip her legs, it's definitely going to look clipped.

My mare gets the same thing, but in the summer it goes away. Maybe your girl just had an off year last summer.

Maybe it was on off year... I'll just have to ride her with splint boots if there's going to be people there this Spring :P
