So I'm getting ready to buy some clippers before show season starts and I'm wondering what would be the best kind? I have never bought any clippers before so I don't really know what kind are good. I'm not looking to pay anymore than $250 witch in my mind should get me some nice clippers. I just need them for doing to face clipping and around the feet, Onyx is very ear shy (I have been able to clip his nose, but not the ears) so I really want to find the quietest clippers possible, and I want something small but will get the job done. Thanks for you help guys!!!! If anyone has any used clippers for sale feel free to pm me also.

I'm curious to hear the opinions as well. So far I havn't seen anything too quiet on the market. I'm thinking about using scissors on Jemma's ears - month of work with the quietest clippers I could find (small ones) still didn't desensitize her to the sound.

My favorite clippers are Oster PowerPro Ultras. They're cordless (which makes it so much easier to use) but pretty powerful. I wouldn't body clip with them but they do everything else easily, legs, bridlepaths, etc. Comes with 2 batteries, a charger, in this nice little suitcase like carrier. They're ~$200 and worth every penny.

My other favorite are good old A5s. Good classic clippers. I don't think they come cordless but they are wonderful!

Also these are great in a pinch for bridle paths for horses you don't have time to get used to noisy clippers and they work great, and are the equivalent of a 30 blade Product Image
I was asking for opinions on that one before and didn't get really good ones. Also Dover people said they are not good to use on ears as they may pull. I never tried them though.

I just recently purchased Wahl Chromado Equine Clipper for $130 from the FactoryOutletStore.com and they are FANTASTIC! I just used them to clip whiskers, bridle path, feet and up the back ankles (to keep mud fever at bay) and they worked beautifully. Just blitzed thru the bridle path - and previously the little name brand battery clippers I used had baby it the whole time. It's both corded or cordless, keeps a 90 min charge, comes w/ 4 attachments plus it has 5 positions on the clipper itself that you just move the switch to change depth. AWESOME!! I'm in love!

I have the Oster A5 Golden 2 speed clippers and they are very nice....but probably not quiet enough if you are looking for something as quiet as possible.

A friend of mine has the Oster A5 Turbo clippers and they are nice as well..... but again, not super quiet.

Thanks for the opinions guys!! I will see what I can find, i guess I could just not clip his ears if it comes to that but most judge's around here will mark you down in halter classes if the ear's are not clipped... :-/
