You can find a pair of cordless clippers for rather cheap ;) Clippers are good for a many things, so investing a little bit of money in them would be worth while. I tried roaching my horse with scissors, absolute disaster. It was so choppy, uneven, and ugly. I had to bust out the clippers. A mans razor wouldnt have a chance against a horses super thick mane, and it probably wouldnt do any better than scissors. I guess if you cant get clippers, then scissors may be the only option... Ideally clippers would be the best though... Maybe if you cant buy one, you could rent one? from a dog grooming place or something?
