Before and after clipping
 
I love how amazing before and after pictures look in regards to clipping (especially the minis:D). I would love to see yours!!
I'll start with my sheep I mean miniature horse.

Unfortunately my blades went dull before finishing but still looks way more comfy!!

Your pictures are great- and your horses look sooo much more comfortable in the "after" pictures (I loved the pretty dapples on that second mini!).

I'll be honest, I am terrified of clipping and last time my girl needed it I convinced the BO to do it for me. :oops: Do you have any good video clips, etc. you'd recommend to get myself ready to do it on my own? What are your tips and tricks?

The best video I found on body clipping was a free clipping DVD that came with my Wahl clippers. It shows the entire process of body clipping and it's easy to see. I don't think you can order just the DVD though, you would have to buy their clippers. Mine were $34, Wahl ShowPro bridle path/whisker trimmers.

Unfortunately his mane no longer looks like that. His old pasture mate chewed a huge chunk of it off and we had to roach it. Thank goodness he has a great forelock.

When is was chewed off
