Fuzzy Pony Gets Clipped. *Pic Heavy*

This is my pony Cherokee! He is VERY old and VERY fuzzy.

He hasn't been shedding out much these past couple years and the vet suspects he could have cushings, but he has no other symptoms for now. Regardless, he always looks like he's ready for the tundra and not southern california

I decided to help him along and give him a full body shave. Here he is for his first installment... I don't even know how long it took to do this. Felt like 10 hours. I had already filled up 2 of those large buckets full of hair haha.

Had to leave his butt fuzzy overnight. Poor guy!

And today, the finished product!

He seems happier to have all that extra heat off him. Before he would work up a sweat just walking to the pasture! Much more weather appropriate, and slimming too!

Cherokee says thanks for checking out his pics.

My old pony is the same way! We normally have to charge the clippers in the middle of his shave because Bart's hair is so thick! Your guy is adorable by the way!
