Okay, sorry for the horrible horrible horrible quality pictures of the process, I didnt want to take out the good camera while cutting horse hair >.<
We started out with a mane;
Then I cut some off... At this point in time, I froze in terror and asked myself "WHY DID I DO THIS??? HIS BEAUTIFUL MANE!!! IM SO STUPID!!! WHY DOESNT LIFE HAVE A BACK BUTTON" But it was too late...
I had a pile of hair on the ground, just from that little bit that I cut off, I felt sick to the stomach. My ponies gorgeous mane :(
I decide whats done is done, and with tears streaming from my face, I decided to screw his mane up even more (okay... I wasnt really crying, but you get the point)
I dont care anymore, I cant change anything, so... taking a deep breath, I finish off the last of his mane... and am horrified... it. looks. TERRIBLE. I try to smooth it out with the scissors, but no such luck. I step back, and stare. Mortified at what I have done to his mane. It looks like a 2 year old just cut it... I stare at it, and know I will have to shave it off... my attempt at roaching failed.
So, in the middle of a thunder storm, I go and find the dog clippers, and find a plug... Its raining now, and Rusty has NEVER had clippers near him before, so, in the rain and thunder I try to get my horse to chill out with the clippers. Fail. He is spooking, and trying to run off, yanking my arm off, and getting scared by the thunder... Im about to give up, and just not worry about clipping him, and hope his mane grows out alright, when... he just decided instantly, that the clippers arent so bad after all! And, here is the end result
I think I love it :) I might have left to much hair at the withers but, whatever :)
