When you clip your horse, do you clip all the way down to the skin or do you want to leave a smidge of hair?
I started attempting to clip Lacey today (I'm giving her a modified trace clip because she gets SO hairy and sweaty during the winter, and it's been unnaturally hot recently so, with how much hair she already has, every ride has equaled mandatory hosing) and I ran into some issues.
When I tried without attaching the "blending" comb to my clippers, I think it went way too short with her hair since it got all the way down to skin level (and since she's a gray gone white, her skin shows up really darkly against her coat). However, when I tried again with the comb attached, it was next to impossible to get areas that weren't flat...
Do I need a different blade? Or do I really want to clip all the way down to skin level?
Help? And sorry if this is ridiculously silly! Haha
It hopefully isn't any sillier than Lacey, in her pasture, half clipped and looking a fool.
