Exclamation worst clip job ever...

About 2 weeks ago, I clipped my horses neck and chest (bib clip) and when I was done with it, it had clipped down to his skin.

Anyhow, I did it with Wahl Dog Clippers but, they clip through thick hair and they worked real well.

Before I bought them, I asked the guy at the store what blade they were and he told me they were a 10 blade, well they were a 40!!! his guard hairs are coming in so, it really doesn't look bad anymore but, I guess here's a picture of the WORST clip job EVER!!!



so embarrassed well, I learned that the clippers have a detachable blade and I bought a new blade for it and if anything I could also, throw a 5 attachment on it.

Omg, I am looking at this picture on my phone and I am not even going to say what this looks like at first glance! Lol!

I think I did the worst clip job ever on my mini, Boo, just a few months ago! I am not good, PLUS the clippers stopped working correctly towards the end...would only work if held at a certain angle....so he had (and still has) these weird swoops on him...hard to explain! Oh well, he doesnt show or have any reason to look super pretty, it is really just so he is comfortable in this sofla heat. The good thing for is...hair grows!

I know well it's because, I took it on my cell phone. Looks better in person and on camera it really does. LOL. Yeah, his guard hairs are growing back so, I'm not embarrassed anymore, it's starting to look better :)

Oh dear. This is unfortunate. I see it too. :/

Beau, don't stress it, hair grows....

dont feel bad! i messed up my horses bib clip too. I had started doing it as a trace clip, and decided i hated the color he was underneath. So he's got an awkwardly wide bib clip ;) lol! and he's older, so his skin was all wrinkly and terribly hard to clip! lol :)

I really agree with the BrewCrew. Hair grows.

No streaming blood. You did good.

I have to ask, since it wasn't working out properly, why did you keep going???
