Grooming nightmare!
6 Attachment(s)
My Rocky Mountain colt has for some reason gotten matted fur while he is shedding and it looks like dredlocks!!!! It is a grooming nightmare!

And the last two are just for cuteness :)

I know how you feel- I have a VERY light palomino horse- basically grey. The day of our first show his winter coat came in and he rolled in manure in his stall- :)

I bought my Fjord colt from Canada last month and he has a ton of matts from his long winter coat. It is a grooming nightmare!!! :evil:
But thankfully it is starting to shed out and go away.

I spent hours on Lyric's coat the other day with a slickneasy. Going back out today to tackle her tail again. Sigh.

He's gorgeous!! Love his color!

Thanks everyone! I was getting so frustrated and fed up with it and it has been an unusually warm spring for us so I took the clippers to it. He had never been exposed to the clippers before and didn't care one bit. He actually like the vibrations of it on his belly. I also did a little around his ears to see how he would do and it didn't even phase him. He was more mad at me because I would let him play with the extension cord. lol.
