    Hmmm. It looks really nice, so "clean shaven". I might do this on the hinds of my haffie. Her front feathers are "arranged" differently from her hinds and are no trouble...her hind actually get in my way a bit when I am trimming/picking her feet. But, they are so cute - otherwise. :) Decisions.

    ... then I saw what a nice job you did.. it REALLY DOES look better!

    I was going to fuss for cutting feather but that looks really good!!!! Much better than I ever would have expected. Also a tip, take baking soda and hydrogen peroxide works wonders for cleaning up feathers.

    I'll second the baking soda but I add a drop of two of dawn and have great results. I just trim the heel up to the ankle so I keep the handle and most of the feather but not the bulk. I had one develop grease heel and this keeps that area much drier and I can see and tend to cuts or scrapes promptly.

    Our gypsy cob type always gets her feathers clipped off, I just don't appreciate the look of all that hair!!!

    Clipped legs are easy to clean, specially if you are showing and unless the feathers are full, and fluffly and clean they just kinda look ratty. I don't trim my horses unless I need to , but then again I don't show
