Why I hate clipping bays!!

Faith and I have a few shows coming up in June and seems as how she grows a pony like 6 inch coat during winter, I decided to clip her.

All was well and good, she was an angel to clip (not much fases her in the scarey dept) and at the end of 3 hrs I stood back to admire my handiwork only to view this.......

I forgot how hideous a bays coat looks afterward, it's sort of a cross between dishwater grey and babypoo brown!!! Ugh!! I really hope it grows out quick!!

I was lucky enough to have a pretty dark Mahogany bay, so she always stayed pretty dark.
But she doesn't look that bad and it will grow back, what does she normally look like?[/b]

Her summer coat is like this

For winter, darken it a few shades (more blood bay) and lengthen it..... a lot!!

She looks nice and neat now look on the bright side, you don't have to groom 3 inches of fur now! It is worse when you have to clip your jet black to a mushroom colour

Yeah I hate clipping to no matter what color they are but she looks good :)

I see your point. Its hard to see how pretty she is when you KNOW what she'll look like soon. Wouldn't it be nice if you didn't know...then you could be all awe shocked when she looked like the 2nd picture! I think she's pretty reguardless of her color!
