First body clip!

So Stitch isn't shedding properly, he's literally standing in his pasture and sweating. We've gone from 30 degree days to 81 degrees yesterday. And with my first show in a couple weeks I figured if id clip him and let it grow in some in time for the show.
So this was my first full body clip, any opinions? I thought I didn't do half bad, I could start a business!

Before!
After!

You did really good! Did you eat a bit of hair along the way?

He looks good! I don't see anything glaringly wrong, so looks good to me!

I'd be wondering if there might be a medical reason why he isn't shedding out, though. Maybe just the crazy weather, but with horses you never know!

Well he was shedding, but the weather here in Nor Cal has been insane. In November we had days in the 20s, then December averaged out in the 70s, January and February were in like the 50s and 60s during the day, and dipping into the 20s at night. So it was just crazy. So he's been shedding and growing more hair at the same time. And now, I think it's warming up so I figured i'd just clip him. And if it does for some reason dip again, i'll throw a heavier blanket on him. Cause right now i'm just blanketing him at night.

I ate so much hair. I had hair in so many places where hair shouldn't be.
