You know those little hand massagers you can pick up at Walmart or a drugstore, I have used those on my horses, it makes basically the same sound as clippers.....start with approach/retreat with it off, then rub them with the massager, do that till they are comfortable with it off and rubbing them around the head/ears/etc. Then turn it on, do the same with approach/retreat (not touching them at first), then touch them around the shoulders with it.....if they move around, move with them and take it away when they stand still, keep repeating this.
My mare loves the little hand massager LOL
