I didn't do much today, I just clipped Wildfire's ears, whiskers, and bridlepath. I also went ahead and clipped Buckshot's bridlepath and the hair on his fetlocks on his front legs. (It gets all nasty in his sport boots) Wildfire is VERY touchy about her nose, so we really worked on her letting me clip her whiskers.
Buckshot I have never clipped before. He was very scared of it, which surprised me, and was pulling a bit on the leadrope. He would normally relax then, and I'd move a bit closer with them, he'd tense, relax, I'd move a bit closer, and so on. He spooked on time very badly when one of the dogs nipped at his heels. Once I got him calmed down I scolded said dog very severly. Most of our dogs have some "cow sense" and have been used in the past to help herd the cows when we had them. My Baussie knows that she will get in trouble if she chases the horses unless told. (If they break out) Zip, my sister's dog, tries to "help" with the horses, which is what he tried to do in this situation.
Anyway, we started our process over and I got him clipped. I didn't do his back legs because there was nowone to hold onto him and the cord on my clippers wasn't long enough. I'll have to get an extension cord out there next time.
I was also not pleased with the clippers I bought. They cut fine, but they're very noisy, they vibrate a lot, and easily start to overheat. I also wish I would've just bought a cordless one too. Oh well, you live and learn :)
