    Are they just regular pocket clippers? Nothing fancy?

    Ya, they are just cheap little ones I got at my feed store. Sorry, I can't remember what their called but they are definitely nothing special. I think their made by Wahl & they come with a 40 blade.

    Hm, I've never seen quarter marks done with clippers. That's interesting. Most people I know, wet the horse's hair and then use a stiff brush to brush the hair the wrong way. Many places sell stencils for this type of thing, in all different shapes. Or you could make your own stencil.

    Also, thanks for all the complements on Willie! It really only takes a minute or two to braid his hair like that, though it does take a lot of practice to build up speed and have it look neat at the same time! But that's all it really takes. If you're not very good at braiding, just take some time to practice and your skills will improve. :)

    It's not meant to be quarter marks. Just something I do for fun., and it's a little more permanent which is what I want, quarter marks are'nt.
