I finally wrangled some clippers that are beast enough to give Miss Lacey a trace clip.
Amusingly, they're the clippers my grandmother used to give my grandfather haircuts. They're both deceased now so I got the clippers when we were cleaning out their house. We also found a Navajo horse blanket in their house that they were using as a rug (I also got that). My grandparents were the best.
Now, I have a new quandary. Since her blanket that she wears most often is a little big around the neck and lets her shoulders get completely wet when it rains, would it be foolhardy to clip part of her shoulders?
I don't want her to get too cold from being wet or anything... But, I do want to clip her shoulders though because they get crazy sweaty on rides...
Also, is it a bad idea to clip her fetlocks so mud doesn't get all up in her fetlock hair? Will her legs be too cold if I also clip from the top of her hoof to a little above the feltock?
