Wow! Little ones sure do get hairy.
I think you did great! I can't tell though for sure, did you do his neck?
Oh, and of course I love the heart! That is so cute.

Awwww, he's adorable! I think you did a great job for the first time! I love the little heart on his bum.

That's funny your clippers died! I've always been told to do both sides as even as you can, so you don't end up with a half shaved horse. =]

Once, while giving a body clip on a Fjord, I shaved LACEY [her name] along her side and then out went the clippers. Luckily she was a lesson pony, so she didn't have to go get embarrassed at a show, but I still felt kinda bad.

And about your clipping... he looks so funny because his legs are really hairy, but you did great. He's REALLY cute. Good job on the heart, I had a heck of a time putting on R on my horse's butt, I can't imagine a heart. =]

He's a My Little Pony!!!!!! <3 You did really good on that note, I know the first time I will try it the poor horse will be a laughing stock.


You can tell a gelding. You can ask a stallion. But you must discuss it with a mare. -Unknown
