    I use scissors all of the time to trim up my horse. I don't have electricity at my barn, so I do have a pair of the hand held/hand operated clippers, but they are really tiring to your hand, so I tend to stick with the scissors for most stuff.

    I don't own clippers, they are expensive in the store. If I show my horses, it's only open, free fair shows and I do it just for the fun. I always use scissors, they are easy, quick, and my horse doesn't care about the sound they make.

    (My baby boy is an appy though, so I hardly have to worry about that stuff anyway as he doesn't have much hair!)

    *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!!

    I have never used actual scissors but I used to use a pair of old sheep shears to trim a bridle path. I don't clip anything else on my horses and I don't use them anymore since I got a pair of clippers but this is what I used to use.

    I HATE clippers! They just seem annoying to me, with that buzzing sound and vibration. I don't even trim bridle paths, but I do even up the manes with scissors every so often.

    Oh, and about the kids cutting their hair before picture day - I did this the summer before eighth grade. I had pretty, thick, wavy hair halfway down my back and I just decided I needed a haircut and snipped it off to my shoulders. I did, however, cut some chunks off that were six-eight inches long and so I had to let a barber fix it, and he had to layer it a lot.

    My clippers won't work on my horses legs, so I use scissors as an alternative. I only really use clippers on my pony's whiskers.
