I'm trying to decide whether or not I should clip Boo's legs, whiskers, ears, etc. What do you think?

I think it depends on the breed.

I love feathers! Don't really care too much for beards, but I've never really noticed the ear hair.

I don't really care about the extra hair when I'm not showing, but if I am those ponz get clipped up.
Whiskers always get clipped. I can't stand them.

I didn't vote because I love the faces/ears clipped but I LOOOOVE feathers!

Yep breed is a big decider for me also!

I let my horses go all natural. I don't show or anything so there's no real point for them to get trimmed. Not to mention all of that hair does do something (hair in the ears help keep bugs out, whiskers are like feelers for them, and I guess the feathers help protect their legs a bit (I'm not sure, my guys don't really have feathers)
