horse approved clippers?

I was looking at cordless clippers, and just started wondering if the ones sold in horse shops are the same as ones sold for humans. Will a good regular set do the same good job or are they specifically designed for horse hair?

Human clippers are made for much finer hair. Go for horse clippers definitely!

You need horse clippers and even then you need to buy according to what you want to do with them

I use a dog clippers and it works just fine....then again I don't ever clip the whole body, just tidy up parts in the summer (ears, muzzle, bridle path ect)

There blades are what makes the difference.

For my little clippers (for whiskers, ears, fetlocks, etc.) I have a pair I bought in the men's hair section at Walmart, those are the same as the ones sold at the tack store. But for big clippers (for body clipping) I would definitely pick up some horse specific ones. And it is the blade that makes the difference, but you also want a pair of clippers that re up to the job you need them to do.

I ought a pair of pink osters that have been awesome. I have in the past used dog clippers with no issue but the horse ones do a much better job I think.

I'd get some horse clippers. They do much better.

' horse approved clippers?' lol, I've not known of a horse that's approved of em, but they will accept em

I used to clip horses as a side job.....when you look for your clippers, please do check on the price of replacement blades/sharpening......sometimes the price of sharpening a few sets of blades or replacing the blades can cost more than the clippers.....it's a real money grab
