Lately I have been wanting to keep my guy looking cleaner and neater.
First of all, I trimmed his tail. It used to drag a little on the ground, and the ends would get very brown/yellow (he is white.) I trimmed it up to about his pastern/fetlock area. Not too short, just enough to keep it off the ground. So, how long do you think it will take to grow back?
Next I trimmed his little feathers on his fetlocks. They were about an inch long, but I trimmed them so that they were about a half inch. I didn't cut them close because I kind of think they're cute, but they don't make him look clean cut. How long till they grow out again?
I also trimmed his whiskers... They were kind of gross and long. They had mud all over them (not sure how he managed that...
) and were quite long. So I trimmed them with scissors (he is afraid of clippers). He looks much better now. But, will this make it harder for him to do things? I know that whiskers are used to feel around and sense things... Right?
I trimmed a bridle path too. I know all about this one, so I don't need any questions.
I have a question about those whiskers by their eyes. Are they whiskers or like, eyelashes? And do I trim them or leave them?
Another question (kind of silly)... what exactly does Show Sheen do?
I'm confused, does it repel dirt, or make the coat shiny?
And about his hooves. They seem a bit dry and dusty on the soles. What should I do to keep them healthy and give a nicer appearance?
Thanks to anyone who read and answered!!!
