Clipping
Ok, so all you people with sparkly fresh clipped ponies have made me jealous so I decided to clip V. Yay! :-bd What was I thinking? :rofl Anyway. I really like how its turning out, I will be able to clean up all the skin junk she got this winter and she looks much better. And it's late enough I shouldn't have to blanket her unless theres one last cold snap. You think her face was nice before? wait till I post pics of her clipped and beardless. :shock: :love Also she is an ANGEL. I clipped her face when she was a weanling but even so I didn't expect her to be this good. She doesn't even wiggle! I diddnt finish the outside of her ears and the legs might be a little trouble but we'll see when we get there. The bad part? I dulled out an old blade AND a new blade with one side almost (but not quite) done :roll: :BH ...ahhh...got to run to atwoods today. Her coat was thicker than I expected! So, pics when I am all done. I'm not showing her off looking like an llama. :P

Re: Clipping

Just a note on clipping... is V starting to shed yet? I don't usually clip once the spring coat is coming in unless it's a pony that gets clipped several times through the year.

Show us the photos when you're done though! I'm jealous of your calm girl -- Diana gets murderous when the clippers come near even though I clipped her face when she was still a nursing baby.

Re: Clipping

She's just shedding a few hairs here and there. really nice day today though there are fires scattered across the county, advantage of living on this hill I can see them all lol.

I got her all finished up. Legs were a small circus but I got a rough cut done and she'll be better next time. :) Also had a bit of trouble on the mane line she kept shaking her head but I think I managed to not take any mane off lol.

Re: Clipping

Show pictures! I love your filly.

I just realized you can see her tiny single body spot in the pics now that she's shaved. it's near the top of her left shoulder, penny sized. You can also see the tiny roan "beauty mark" in the center of her left cheek.
