Clipping yet anyone??

The hay is in for the winter, picking up a truck load of feed next week....the rugs are primed, and this weekend....CLIPPING!

Well, hope to get Tia and Pasim done this weekend, and Highlander and Ruben the following weekend.

I actually loathe and detest the job, takes ages to do it well....

Pete serviced the clippers a few weeks ago to make sure they work well, and the blades are newly sharpened....no excuse now to do a decent job!

Pictures to follow do we think....?

I have dusted off my clippers today. Plan to do it next week. I always buy one of those disposable hooded worksuits ( think CSI!) and chuck it away afterwards as those bdooly little hairs get everywhere.
Never ever wear a fleece!!!!! Love Lizzie

Have already taken some fluff off, just under the neck as they are still out and the weather has been so mild i dont want to put their big rugs on just yet.

Wont clip the 2 mares until they come in and even then it will only be a low trace as they dont do enough work to warrant any more coming off. The gelding will stay as he is with just the hair off the underside of his neck as he lives out and has to be sedated to be clipped.
