Thanks! Haha...yes...well fed! He is going to start "getting pony in shape boot camp" soon....that might include a belly sweat

Phew...I don't think I could clip a full size horse. This mini has taken me going on three days. I thought it would be more fun lol
I seriously have no idea how you clipped Gidget in one night!

Lol,I don't know how I clipped Gidget in one night either! It took me soooooooo long and she eventually fell asleep while I was clipping her.Bless her heart.

If you want you can clip stormy this spring and I will pay you.

Belly sweat! I think they had some on

I clipped for 2 hours today and got quite a bit off. I just have 2 1/2 legs and his belly to go and then of course just touch up all over. He looks so cute

Thank you I was pretty nervous since it was my first clip job ever and it certainly didn't turn out perfect,but it could have been a lot worse...haha.

That shower is awesome! Sure wish I had one to bathe my minis in.
What a surprise to find Dapple under all that fuzz!
If he goes missing I wouldn't bother looking here for him....

With practice the clipping will go faster too, I have six, and I can now get them clipped in about 2 hours each. I usually do it over a couple of days to give my hands, back and knees a rest.

Phew...I would love to be able to clip in two hours....I haven't even had the time to finish his 3 legs yet...poor little fella'.

Its a shame his breeder didn't register him...he would be fun to show :) At least we can still play around with fun shows.

it just floors me how mini's can be one color, get clipped and look like a completly different horse! How do you do reg. papers, do you go by pre-clipped color or post-clipped color????

Cowgirl up!
