Question A Mowhawk for Copper?

Hi:D So what do you guys think about giving my gelding a mohawk?? Do I need clippers or will siscors work? If I do give him one, what about his tail? Is it better to wait untill warmer weather or will the winter work? How long will it take to grow out? What length should I cut it to? Forelock too or just the mane? Umm, I think that's all.

thanks,
tcg

oh and sorry about the bad pics, he loves me too much(is that possible??), he thinks every time he sees me he has to run up and give me horsie kisses rather taht stant back and let me take his picture! :lol:

I say mohawk him but leave his tail alone. You can do it with just scissors if you want, they need to be rather sharp though or they can bog down pretty easily...

You will probably have the most luck with clippers and I wouldn't do anything to his tail.

Also me being the colour freak I am I have to say I don't think he is palomino(looked at your sig) I'm pretty certain he is flaxen chestnut. Sorry if I'm wrong xD

really? Oh. Okay. I just figured he was because in the summer he's really golden with some with specks and a flaxen mane/tail. Flaxen chestnuts cool though, sounds better than just plain chestnut

(after many awwwwws at him) What a cute little guy!
I think a mohawk would be adorable on him =D
You could do it with scissors but clippers would be a lot better..and I think it should be fine to do it in the winter,
I'd definitely leave his tail alone though
(also I agree about the colour too)

okay, I don't have clippers but I want to give him one. Are sicsors going to be okay?

okay. I'm scared but I think I am going to go with it. It's just hair, it'll grow back. And I'll take a couple pairs of sicsors so I can get it right
