full body clip on a gypsy horse

LOL, just kidding... But, I did clip her whole body with clipper guards! What a difference though... feel free to critique it's a work in progress for the next few days. I won't be clipping her winter coat away it's still very thick just more even...
She still has a mustache though, LOL, gotta keep that!

Anywho...

She looks great! Looks like a lot of work though. (; And nice braids, too!

It's where I learned about working hard
And having a little was just enough

LOL, thanks!

My clippers sure had their work cut out for them! After the first day/ hour and a half of trimming I had to call it quits and resume the next day. This is the first time I've ever clipped a horse before, thank you for the kind words.

I'm going to continue to trim/shape her up a bit sometime next week, LOL.

Great job. All you needed to do at this point was to clip off the belly mane and clean up the face. I wouldn't do any more until after shedding, if that even becomes necessary.

Thank you featheredfeet,

I'm done trimming length wise. I think it's a nice thickness for a winter coat. It's still thicker than most of the horses full winter coat, LOL. I think I will go over it with a similar length guard to even everything up. I'm taking her to a halter class on the 16th and she's going up against some clydes I hear.

You reminded me that I must clip the fluffy pony too .. You can't see it so much in the photo but you can make an idea judging by his beard . He is even more fluffier now if that's possible. Incredible how fast their hair grows.

He was clipped 6-7 times this year, the last clip being 2 months ago, a trace clip so that's why he doesn't have to much hair on his belly. 422180_545869142103966_287609357_n.jpg

Something I learned my first time that helped tremendously.

If you aren't going to ride the clipped horse for a few days after clipping, give them a good bath, then soak them with Show Sheen, or something of the the like. It helps the clippers to glide.
