*Puts hands up* I. Use. Scissors. GASP
Haha. Well it's true..I like to use scissors. Not all the time but I do prefer to use them. Clippers are so much maintenance and I don't even show my horses.
A year ago we took my mare to a training barn. Super fancy, bratty spoiled teen, kinda barn. We did a month of training and then entered a fun show on the last weekend. The day before the show my friend stayed late to help me bathe/groom Candy. A different girl walked by and quote "OMG what the he**?" "She has whiskers!!!" ....I was like..."Yeah..and??"
Long story short, she went and grabbed the clippers plugged them into the wall and began trimming.... POOR Candy, she couldn't handle them :( --She started freaking out!! I just sat there
... They all were like "She'll get used to it eventually"
I believe horses should have whiskers, especially if they live outside..It's their natural detection system!!
GRR sorry..just had to get that out of my system!
Candy also has a really sensitive stomach so she has occasional diarrhea. I snip a few inches of the bottom of her tail and some random bad pathes. I also do the bridle path and occasionally some manes.
I have given a few jacked up hair cuts here and there but my horses still love me!!
