Prayingcowgirl, I have minis, and you are right, they never really do get shed out all the way... (I guess in some climates they might?)
After vowing I would never body-clip my minis, I have to admit that I do now!
Boy, the first year I had them, I brushed, and curried, and finger-plucked, and used a shedding block, day after day, after day.....
Finally had nice shiny, slick little men, and then literally a month later they started getting in their winter coats!
So now as soon as I know our winter weather is truly gone I am more than happy to whip those clippers right out! Don't worry too much about how they are going to look right away.
After about two weeks they look pretty good and blended, even if you do not manage a really great clip job.
Just practice, you will be surprised how quickly you will get the hang of it!
