    LOL, my husband stole my Wahl horse clippers to trim his beard, they were not the greatest anyways, so I let him have them, works great for him! For horses, I love my Osters with the detachable blades. Now a great trick for the stubble on the muzzle after you clip and you want a no stubble look - men's disposable razors work like no other for getting a smooth muzzle.

    Yeah, I really don't have the money to spend on large animal clippers right now, so I'll probably just save up for a good pair. Thanks everyone !

    Apperently yes, people clippers can be used :\ as I type this I'm sporting a full beard and it's muggy as heck out.

    Apperently my clippers worked fine on most of the pony until the magic smoke came out.

    Got her done with a 20$ set so I hear. I still don't have any to shave with though. So yes you can, no you shouldn't, and if you do, buy 6 lol.

    Yep...Big Bubba clippers for a big job.

    So, this is purely a nosey type question, but why do a full body clip in the summer? Not critical...just curious.

    I purchased a Wahl Human Clipper, intending on using it for bridle paths - it cannot handle the thick hair and doesn't have a fast enough speed in order to clip though it. It works okay for legs and faces, but it leaves lines in the coat and overheats quickly.

    Instead, I use an Andis clipper that was marketed for dog and cat grooming. I actually got it for free years ago from a friend when I started grooming school, but it couldn't handle working 8+ hours in a day without overheating. It works wonderfully for the touch ups that I need to do on my horses! It might be worth it to call around to pet grooming shops and see if anyone has one they would like to sell or give away. At the shop I worked at, we had a bucket full of old "back-up" clippers that still worked fine for short periods of time, but simply couldn't handle the stress of running all day long.

    Thanks for the help! And I want to do a full body clip in the summer because I'm going to be riding her a lot, and it gets pretty hot in the summer.

    My grandma picked up a pair of Wahl human clippers at a garage sale for a buck. They worked alright for a small while but they died soon. I would just put the money into some horse clippers. I bought Wahl Show Pro Plus clippers for $40 and they have excellent online reviews.
